The Raw Factory Ltd. is recalling a number of raw pet food products containing tripe and/or pork due to Salmonella contamination.
The recall was initiated following a freezer breakdown at the company.
“The product could therefore carry a potential risk, either through direct handling of the pet food, or indirectly for example from food bowls or utensils or contact with the faeces of infected animals. In humans, symptoms caused by salmonella usually include fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps,” according to the recall notice posted by theUK’s Food Standards Agency.
The following products are included in the recall:
All of the recalled products bear a best-before date of September 2019 and were purchased between Sept. 19 and Oct. 31 this year.
