Carnivore Meat Co. has issued a voluntary recall of a single limited lot of Vital Essentials Frozen Chicken Patties Entrée for Dogs.

The Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) selected and tested product as part of a national collection initiative, which was issued by the Center of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) on June 3, 2015. The FDA notified Carnivore Meat Co. that one of the samples collected tested positive for Salmonella.

There have been no customer complaints reported. No other product manufactured by Carnivore is involved in this voluntary recall.

The single lot involved in this voluntary recall are 6 lb. bags with the UPC code 33211 00807, lot number 11475,  and best by date of 20161108 (November 8, 2016).

The “Best By” date code and lot number are located on the back of the package.

The affected product was distributed in California, Florida, Georgia, Rhode Island, Texas and Washington.

The FDA said animals with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting, though some may only have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain.

Infected but otherwise healthy animals can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your animal has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, contact your veterinarian.

If you are a consumer and have purchased a bag of the affected product, call +1 (920) 370-6542 to be assisted in obtaining a replacement or a full refund from your local retailer for your original purchase. If your package has been opened, dispose of the raw food in a safe manner by securing it in a covered trash receptacle.
