Pet Danger – Carnivora Dog and Cat Food Recall

The recall includes 6 varieties of Carnivora brand raw pet food. Health Canada reported a possible contamination  with E. coli O157. E. coli O157 is a particularly dangerous strain of bacteria that can cause serious and life-threatening illness in humans after handling the affected food. Common symptoms observed after infection include nausea, vomiting, headache, mild fever, severe stomach cramps, and watery or bloody diarrhea. Most symptoms end within five to ten days. Pregnant women, those with weakened immune systems, young children and older adults are most at risk for developing serious complications and might need hospitalization.

Although this affects products mainly sold in Canada we know that we have readers on the border who may not be aware of the recall

What you should do

Consumers should immediately stop using any of the affected pet food products and contact the retailer where they purchased the affected product for a full refund or exchange. Consumers are advised to always wash hands, surfaces and utensils thoroughly with soap and water after feeding, handling or cleaning up after pets. Clean surfaces that come into contact with pet food or ill pets. For more information, consumers may visit the company’s website and contact Carnivora Pet Food at 1-888-665-0856 between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM CST, Monday – Friday or by email.
