FDA issues Salmonella, Listeria warnings for Performance Dog frozen raw pet food
A Performance Dog frozen raw pet food sample has tested positive for Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes (L. mono), causing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to issue a warning to pet owners.
Two samples of different finished products, Performance Dog and a beef variety, that were collected during a routine inspection of the product manufacturer’s facility tested positive. Fortunately, only one of the two products sampled has reached the market.
Performance Dog raw pet food with lot number 072219 has been sold frozen in two-pound pouches. However, the lot numbers were only printed on the boxes and not on the plastic pouches sold at retail.
The FDA is advising consumers not to use any Performance Dog product that was purchased after July 22, 2019. Additionally, the agency is advising consumers who have had the product in their homes to clean and disinfect the areas where they have stored the product, and throw the pet food away in a secure container to avoid being consumed by other animals.
Bravo Packing, Inc. is the manufacturer of Performance Dog raw pet food.
