Bravo! is voluntarily recalling three of its raw diet frozen foods for dogs and cats, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

This recall is being issued out of caution, the company said, because while these products tested negative for pathogens by an independent third party prior to distribution, they were run on the same day or an adjacent day to a product that did test positive for pathogens.

The product that tested positive has been 100 percent contained and is not subject to this recall.

The recall involves only:

  • 5 pound Bravo! Chicken Balance frozen raw diet chubs (tubes) with “best used by” dates of 3/6/15 and 3/12/15 imprinted on the side of the plastic casing. There were 26 cases with the 3/6/15 date distributed nationally and 36 cases with 3/12/15 date were distributed nationally.
  • 2 pound Bravo! Chicken Blend frozen raw diet chubs (tubes) with the “best used by” date of 3/21/15 imprinted on the side of the plastic casing. There were 67 cases with the 3/21/15 date distributed nationally.
  • 5 pound Bravo! Beef Blend Burgers bags with the “best used by” dates of 3/21/15 and 3/22/15 imprinted on the back panel of the plastic bag. There were 47 cases with the 3/21/15 date distributed nationally and 55 cases with the 3/22/15 date were distributed nationally.

No other products or sizes are affected.

The recalled product should not be sold or fed to pets.  The company has received no reports of illness in either people or animals associated with this product.
