    About Salmonella and Listeria


    Salmonella and L. mono can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products.

    Symptoms of infection in people include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.

    Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

    Pets with Salmonella and/or L. mono infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting.

    Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain.

    Infected, but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans.

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

    What Caused the Recall?


    This recall is being initiated after the firm was notified by the Washington Department of Agriculture when sample was collected and tested positive for Salmonella and/or Listeria.

    The firm did conduct its own test which produced a negative result for both Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes.

    However, because of the company’s commitment to overall safety and quality, Steve’s Real Food is conducting a voluntary recall of these products.

    Consumers should also follow the safe handling tips published on the Steve’s Real Food packaging, when disposing of the affected product.

    No pet or human illnesses from this product have been reported to date.

    This recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

    What to Do?


    Consumers are encouraged to check the lot code and best buy date of the affected pet foods.

    Any product with the noted lot code and best buy dates should be returned to the specialty retailer where product was purchased for a full refund.

    Consumers with questions may contact Steve’s Real Food at 888-526-1900, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4 pm MT.

    U.S. citizens can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

    Or go to http://www.fda.gov/petfoodcomplaints.

    Canadians can report any health or safety incidents related to the use of this product by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.
