Blue Ridge Beef last month announced a recall of one of its frozen dog food products over fears that it could be contaminated with Listeria.
The concern here is two-fold. Listeria can sicken dogs–sometimes seriously–but it can also poison people who handle the potentially contaminated food and then neglect to wash up or wash up inadequately.
The recalled dog food is packaged in 2-pound chubs. It was sent to stores in these states:
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
If you think you might have some of this on hand, you’ll want to look for these codes on the packaging:
- Lot #103 mfd12716
- Turkey with bone
- UPC code 854298001887
In the company’s press release about the recall, Blue Ridge Beef says that the recall was prompted by an FDA inspection and sampling. If you have this dog food on hand, you are, of course, urged not to feed any more of it to your animal. You can simply throw out any remaining product or return it to your place of purchase for a refund.
