Recall: K9 Natural Ltd Voluntarily Recalls 4 Batches of K9 Natural Frozen Chicken Feast Raw Pet Food Due to Possible Listeria Contamination


Original Publish Date: April 16, 2018

The following was posted on the FDA’s site on April 13 and confirmed by Pet Age with K9 Natural Ltd:

K9 Natural Ltd is voluntarily recalling four batches of the K9 Natural Frozen Chicken Feast 2.2-pound and 11-pound bags that were imported into the U.S. market in June 2017 because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes.

Listeria Monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in humans and animals. Symptoms of infection may include nausea, vomiting, aches, fever, and diarrhea and may lead to most serious issues such as meningitis and abortion. Healthy people and animals can be infected, and some are more susceptible, including young children, pregnant women, frail or elderly people or others with weakened immune symptoms. Animals that become ill with Listeria Monocytogenes could display symptoms similar to humans.

Listeria Monocytogenes can affect animals eating the product and there is risk to humans from handling the products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to the products.

No pet or human illnesses, injuries or complaints have been reported to date.

If you have any symptoms after handling the recalled product, please contact your healthcare provider. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has any symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.
