Rad Cat Raw Diet Pet Foods Lots Recalled for Possible Listeria and E. coli O121 Contamination

Radagast Pet Food of Portland, Oregon is recalling three lots of Rad Cat Raw Diet Free-Range Chicken Recipe pet food because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. Also recalled is one lot of Rad Cat Raw Diet Pasture-Raised Venison Recipe because it may be contaminated with E coli O121.

The risk to humans is that people handing these products could ingest these pathogenic bacteria if they don’t wash their hands after handling these products. And animals eating these pet foods could get sick or become carriers, and pass the bacteria on to people.

Listeria monocytogenes can sicken pets, with symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, fever, weight loss and muscular or respiratory problems. E. coli O121 is not known to cause illness in cats, but there is zero tolerance for this pathogen in pet foods. Infected cats can transmit the bacteria to the environment and people can pick it up. No pet or human illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The three lots of Rad Cat Raw Diet fFree-Range Chicken Recipe were shipped to distributors in the U.S. in May and June 2018. They have the following lot codes and subsequent best by dates: Lot Code 63057 with Best By Date: 10/9/2019; Lot Code 63069 with Best By Date: 10/23/2019, and Lot Code 63076 with Best By Date: 10/31/2019. The UPC numbers for the different product sizes with those codes and dates are: 8 ounce: UPC 8 51536 00103 6;  16 ounce:  UPC 8 51536 00104 3; and 24 ounce: UPC 8 51536 00105 0. The two lots with best by dates of 10/23/2019 and 10/31/2019 were shipped to one distributor in Vancouver, Canada in addition to U.S. distributors in May and June, 2018.

The single lot of Rad Cat Raw Diet Pasture-Raised Venison Recipe, was shipped to distributors in the U.S. only in May and June 2018. The lot code on that product is 63063, with best by date of 10/15/2019. The UPC numbers are: 8 ounce: UPC 8 51536 00121 0; 16 ounce: UPC 8 51536 00122; 24 ounce: UPC 8 51536 00123 4; and 1 ounce Samples.

If you bought these products, discard them in a sealed container. You can also return them to the retailer where you bought them for a refund. Then clean out your refrigerator or freezer with a mild bleach solution to kill any remaining bacteria. Wash your hands well with soap and water after cleaning and after handling these products.
