Listeria can cause serious illness in both humans and pets. Symptoms include fever, severe headache, nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain; symptoms for pets are similar. Those with weakened immune systems, such as children, and the frail or elderly are more likely at risk of serious illness or death as the result of exposure to Listeria.

“We are asking all pet owners who have bought this product to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund,” said Dr. John Charos, president and CEO, Central Veterinary Associates. “If you notice any symptoms of Listeria in your pets, take them to a veterinarian immediately, as exposure to Listeria can be extremely life-threatening to pets.”
