Re: Fw: Bravo! Issues Nationwide Recall of Select Poultry Products for Dogs and Cats


I hope all these companies who decided to outsource our lives and/or import all this stuff from China are beginning to rethink their stupidity. Or maybe not -- I haven't noticed any CEOs reducing their salaries.

Subject: [CHAT] Fw: Bravo! Issues Nationwide Recall of Select Poultry Products for Dogs and Cats


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE --Vernon, CT -- Sept. 18, 2007--- Bravo! announces a
voluntary recall of select tubes of three of its poultry products for cats and
dogs.  The pet food is being recalled because two of the products have the
potential to be contaminated with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes, while
the other product has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria
monocytogenes.
Both Salmonella and Listeria are organisms which can cause serious infections in dogs and cats, and if there is cross contamination, in people, especially
small children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune
systems. Healthy people with Salmonella infection may only suffer short-term
symptoms, such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal
pain, and diarrhea. Long term complications can include arthritis and other more serious ailments. Healthy people with Listeria infection may only suffer 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.

The company has received no reports of illness in either people or animals
associated with any of the three products.

The recalled products are distributed nationwide to distributors, retail
stores, internet sales and directly to consumers, and they can be identified
by the batch ID code located on the hang tag attached to the bottom of the
plastic film tubes. The recalled products should not be sold or fed to pets.
Pet owners should return unopened frozen tubes of food to the store where
purchased for a full refund.  Pet owners should dispose of opened tubes of
product in a safe manner (example, a securely covered trash receptacle) and return the washed plastic batch ID tag to the store where purchased for a full
refund.

Other Batch IDs for these same products are not involved in the recall.

Bravo! is issuing this action out of an abundance of caution and sincerely
regrets any inconvenience to pet owners as a result of this announcement.
This voluntary recall has been issued because the FDA detected the bacteria in
samples during a recent review.

In an effort to prevent the transmission of Salmonella from pets to family
members and care givers, the FDA recommends that everyone follow appropriate pet food handling guidelines when feeding their pets. A list of safe pet food
handling tips can be found at:
http://www.fda.gov/cvm/CVM_Updates/foodbornetips.htm.

People may risk Salmonella infection not only by handling these pet foods, but also by contact with pets or other surfaces exposed to these foods, so it is
important that they thoroughly wash their hands with hot water and soap.
Anyone who is experiencing the symptoms of Salmonella or Listeria infection
after having handled the recalled product should seek medical attention.
Consumers may report any complaints to FDA's local District Complaint
Coordinator's located on the FDA website:
http://www.fda.gov/opacom/backgrounders/complain.html.

Healthy cats and dogs rarely become sick from Salmonella. Animals ill with Salmonella will display symptoms similar to the ones listed above for humans. People who have concerns about whether their pet has Salmonella or not should
contact their veterinarian.
