KENTUCKY (8/6/18) — G & C Raw, of Versailles, Ohio is recalling 30 1–pound containers of Pat’s Cat Turkey Cat Food and 40 2-pound containers of Ground Lamb Dog Food because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in animals eating the products. Furthermore, there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.
Healthy people infected with Listeria monocytogenes should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, aches, fever and diarrhea. Listeria monocytogenes infections can also spread through the bloodstream to the nervous system including the brain, resulting in meningitis and other potentially fatal problems.
Pregnant women are especially susceptible to Listeria infection, which can result in miscarriage. The young, elderly and people with weakened immune systems also are more vulnerable. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.
Pat’s Cat Turkey and Ground Lamb Dog Food were distributed in Ohio, Minnesota, Indiana, PAN, Kentucky, North Carolina and Georgia and the product was distributed by G & C Raw, LLC through direct delivery.
The Pat’s Cat Turkey comes in 1-pound clear plastic containers with the Lot number WWPKTF051618. The Ground Lamb comes in a 2-pound plastic container with the Lot number MFF022718. The Lot number codes are listed on the bottom right corner of the label.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The recall was as the result of a routine sampling program by the Ohio Department of Agriculture which revealed that the finished products contained the bacteria.
The company has ceased the production and distribution of the product as the company continues its investigation as to what caused the problem.
