The Rancho Santa Margarita, California dog food manufacturer, OC Raw Dog is recalling 640 pounds of product due to salmonella contamination. Furthermore, the Chicken, Fish, and Produce Raw Frozen Dog Food is being voluntarily recalled because salmonella was detected after routine testing after a sample was collected from a retailer.
Of the recalled product, the following are included:
- 6.5 lb. Doggie Dozen Patties
- 4 lb. Doggie Sliders
- 3 lb. Meaty Rox
All recalled products have the lot number 1819 on the box, and use-by-date of May 5, 2016. Likewise, the dog food product was shipped to retail outlets in Colorado, Vermont, and Pennsylvania as well as independent retailers throughout the U.S.
Although the recalled product is dog food, humans can still contract salmonella through handling the raw dog food and not washing their hands. In addition, salmonella can be caught by coming in contact with surfaces the dog food has touched. The following are symptoms of salmonella contamination: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever.
