Pet food recall: Bravo issues nationwide recall of pet food for dogs and cats

By PenBay Veterinary Associates | Jun 06, 2014

According to the Pet Nutrition Alliance and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Bravo is recalling select lots and products of Bravo Pet Food because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. In healthy individuals, Listeria infection can cause short-term symptoms, such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Animals ill with Listeria will display symptoms similar to affected humans.
