RECALL ALERT: Stella & Chewy’s Pet Food/Treats
RECALL ALERT: 20 Varieties of Stella & Chewy’s Dog Food, Cat Food, & Treats Recalled
Recall Alert: Stella & Chewy’s announced a voluntary recall of several varieties of their freeze dried and frozen raw dog and cat foods and treats sold nationwide due to a possible Listeria contamination after the Maryland Department of Agriculture detected Listeria monocytogenes in a single lot of Chewy’s Chicken Freeze-Dried Dinner Patties for Dogs.
According to their announcement, Listeria monocytogenes is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Animals that become ill with Listeria could display symptoms similar to the ones listed above for humans.
As a precautionary measure, Stella & Chewy’s are voluntarily recalling all products from Lot # 111-15 and several products that may have been exposed to that lot.
