- Rad Cat’s Grass-Fed Beef Recipe
- Rad Cat’s Free-Range Turkey Recipe
- Rad Cat’s Free-Range Chicken Recipe

Lot numbers on the affected products are between 62763 and 63101, with best-by dates from Oct. 19, 2018 thru Dec. 3, 2019. All sizes of the above cat food products are affected by the recall. These items were shipped to distributors in the U.S. and Canada from May 10, 2017, to Aug. 9, 2018.
The original recall for the chicken and venison cat food came after “enhanced quality testing conducted as a follow-up to its March 2018 recall” identified 3 lots of chicken that could have potentially been contaminated with listeria, and one that could have been tainted with Shiga Toxin E. coli O121.
According to Tuesday’s recall notice, “The company has identified a source of potential contamination in its facility. The company has taken proactive measures to eradicate the source and it is confident that its corrective actions have eliminated the source of potential contamination related to this recall. This expanded recall will capture any additional lots that may have been affected.”
Animals can shed listeria through their feces onto their coats and into the home environment, and thus serve as sources of infection to humans and other animals in the household.
Consumers who purchased any of the recalled cat food should return it to the place of purchase for a refund, FDA said.
