FDA RECALLS BRAND OF DOG FOOD

CLOVIS (KSMX)- The FDA is recalling Performance Dog brand dog food after samples tested positive for salmonella and listeria.

The agency warned pet owners to stay away from frozen raw pet food from the brand that was produced on or after July 22, 2019.

“The product that entered the marketplace is Performance Dog raw pet food, lot code 072219, sold to customers frozen in two-pound pouches. However, the FDA is cautioning about all Performance Dog frozen raw pet food produced on or after July 22, 2019, because the products do not have lot codes printed on retail packaging. If you have any Performance Dog product that you purchased after July 22, 2019, throw it away,” the agency wrote.

The FDA says Performance Dog raw pet food produced after July 22 “represents a serious threat to human and animal health.”

Salmonella and listeria in pet food can affect the owners who handle it, as well as their pets.
