All products were shipped to distributors in the U.S. in May and June 2018, FDA said. The problem was discovered after routine testing by Radagast detected the pathogens.

Humans can pick up E. coli and listeria through the handling of contaminated pet food. Surfaces such as countertops, along with utensils and pet bowls, may become tainted and transfer the bacteria to human food prepared in the same areas.

FDA has a zero tolerance rule for both listeria and E. coli O121 in pet food. People infected with either bacterium may experience varying degrees of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. Contact your healthcare provider immediately if you suspect an infection.
