Because the green beans used in these meals may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, JFFD is warning the public.
Dogs who are infected with Listeria may experience mild symptoms like diarrhea and vomiting, but severe infections are also possible, with symptoms like fever, muscular and respiratory signs, abortion or miscarriage in pregnant dogs, and even death.
If your dog has eaten the recalled products and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian. The following products are recalled:
- JFFD Beef & Russet Potato
- JFFD Fish & Sweet Potato
- JFFD Turducken
The products were only sold at JFFD retail stores in Southern California and Pet Food Express stores in California.
JFFD is recalling all of these products manufactured between November 1, 2017 and January 14, 2018, with “Best By” dates from 11/01/18 through 01/14/19.
The recalled dog food was sold refrigerated or frozen in the following sizes: 7 oz, 14 oz, 18 oz and 72 oz.
There have been reports of dogs who experienced short-term symptoms of food food poisoning , such as diarrhea and vomiting.
The problem discovered after a consumer reported to veterinary medical staff that her dogs became sick. Tests confirmed that green beans were positive for Listeria monocytogenes.
The supplier of these green beans has stopped distributing the green beans. JFFD is now making the dog food without green beans until the problem is resolved.
For more information, consumers who bought the recalled product should contact JFFD at 866-726-9509, from 9:00 AM – 7:00PM PST seven days a week, for a full credit or refund.
Consumers who bought the products from Pet Food Express should return them to any Pet Food Express store for a full credit or refund.
