Frozen Pet Food Recalled in 4 States




The voluntary recall is due to listeria concerns.

EATONTON, GA — Blue Ridge Beef is voluntarily recalling one of its frozen pet food products due to its potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The affected product was distributed to retail stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.

Listeria can affect animals eating the product. There is also a risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surface exposed to these products.

Healthy people infected with Listeria monocytogenes should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.


The affected product is sold in 2-pound chubs and can be identified with the following manufacturing codes:

Lot #103 mfd12716

Turkey with bone

UPC code 854298001887

According to the company’s recall notice, which was posted on the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s website: “Consumers who have purchased the above lot of turkey for dogs are urged to stop feeding them and return products to the place of purchase for a full refund,” or dispose of the products immediately. Those with questions can email the company at

The company also stated: “This recall was initiated with FDA inspection and sampling of the product. This recall is being made with the knowledge of the US Food and Drug Administration.”

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
