Pet food recalled over salmonella concerns

Bravo Chicken Blend for dogs and cats affected by recall

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Bravo Pet Foods is recalling some of its dog and cat food because of salmonella concerns.

The recall affects the 2 lb. chub of Bravo Chicken Blend diet for dogs and cats with a best by date of 11/13/16.

The recall comes after the Colorado State Department of Agriculture tested a 2 lb. package of the food and found the presence of salmonella.

Out of an abundance of caution, Bravo is also recalling three additional items that did not test positive for salmonella, but were manufactured on the same day.

They are a 5 lb. chub of Bravo Blend Chicken for dogs and cats, 5 lb. bag of Bravo Blend Turkey patties for dogs and cats, and 3 lb. bag of Bravo Balance Turkey for dogs.

The company has not received any reports of illness associated with these products.

If you own this product, return it to the store where you purchased it for a refund. You should also submit a claim on the Bravo website.

Pets with salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets will only have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain.

If your pet has consumed the recalled food and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.
