One Lot of Aunt Jeni’s Frozen Raw Pet Food May Contain Salmonella

The FDA is cautioning pet owners not to feed their animals one lot of Aunt Jeni’s Frozen Raw Pet Food because it may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. That product is Aunt Jeni’s Home Made All-Natural Raw Turkey Dinner Dog Food, sold in 5 pound (2.3 kg) packages. The lot number on the product is 175331, and the use by date is NOV2020.

In the notice, the FDA states, “FDA is issuing this alert because this lot of Aunt Jeni’s Home Made frozen raw pet food represents a serious threat to human and animal health. Because the product is sold and stored frozen, FDA is concerned that people may still have it in their possession.” Salmonella can sicken humans and dogs.

The Salmonella that may be in this product is resistant to multiple antibiotic drugs. In January 2020, the FDA collated one retail sample of this dog food and it tested positive for Salmonella Infantis. In August 2019, the FDA issued a public health advisory after one lot each of two varieties of Aunt Jeni’s frozen raw pet food tested positive for Salmonella and/or Listeria monocytogenes.

This product is sold online and through retail locations around the country.
