Pat’s Cat Turkey and Ground Lamb Pet Food Recalled for Listeria

G & C Raw of Ohio is recalling 30 1-pound containers of Pat’s Cat Turkey Cat Food and 40 2-pound containers of Ground Lamb Dog Food because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem. This is a frozen pet food.

The recalled products were distributed in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Georgia. They were sold through direct delivery. The Pat’s Cat Turkey comes in 1 pound clear plastic containers with lot number WWPKTF051618. The Ground Lamb is sold in 2 pound plastic containers with the lot number MFF022718. The lot numbers are on the bottom right corner of the label.

Routine sampling by the Ohio Department of Agriculture found the pathogenic bacteria in the product. The company has stopped production and distribution as they investigate.

Pets that are infected with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria usually don’t get sick, but animals can display symptoms including mild to severe diarrhea, anorexia, fever, nervous, muscular and respiratory signs, depression, shock, and death. Animals can shed this pathogenic bacteria in their feces, which can get onto their coats and into the home environment, potentially sickening people. If you pet is ill, see your vet.

People can constructs this infection through contact with an animal that is carrying the bacteria, or why handling a contaminated pet food and then not washing their hands thoroughly. The symptoms of listeriosis in people include high fever, stiff neck, muscle aches, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant woman are very vulnerable to this infection, and can suffer miscarriage and stillbirth if infected.

If you purchased these products do not feed them to your pet. Discard them in a sealed package so other animals can’t get at them.
