If you purchased any of these products, do not feed them to your pets. Contact the retailer for full refund or exchange. Wash your hands, surfaces, and utensils that may have come into contact with the foods after feeding.

Public Health Agency of Canada does not recommend feeding raw pet food to pets. If you choose to do so, store all of it away from where you store human food. Keep these foods out of the reach of young children.

Pets infected with E. coli can still look and appear healthy and have no symptoms. But ill and healthy animals can shed E. coli bacteria in their feces. The feces can then contaminate surfaces in the home, and get onto the animal’s coat, where it can be transferred to human hands.

If your pet is showing signs of illness, take them to your veterinarian. And if you are feeding that animal raw pet food, be sure to tell your vet that too.
