RECALL: Just Food for Dogs
Just Food for Dogs has issued their first-ever recall after a report from a customer of vomiting and diarrhea after her dogs ate their Turducken product.
In a detailed email from Founder, Shawn Buckley, it was confirmed that one batch of Turducken special (made in their West Hollywood kitchen and code dated: WH 11/18/18) did test positive for Listeria. The dogs who were affected were switched to another food and made a full recovery, without veterinarian intervention, within a day.
Why the Recall
The returned Turducken food was tested and subsequently confirmed the presence of Listeria. The source of the contamination has been traced to the human-grade green beans used in the Turducken recipe.
Based on these preliminary results, Just Food for Dogs is voluntarily:
- Expanding the Turducken recall to all batch dates.
- Recalling two other recipes containing green beans:
- Beef & Russet Potato; and
- Fish & Sweet Potato.
- Notifying the FDA as the contaminated green beans may also affect the human food supply.
Severe disease from Listeria in dogs is rare. In fact, Listeria is of more concern to humans. Healthy dogs may experience no signs from listeria contamination, but elderly or weakened dogs may experience vomiting and/or diarrhea.
What to do Next
Consumers are urged to properly dispose of any affected product.
Consumers may also email (support@JustFoodForDogs.com) or call (866-726-9509) Just Food for Dogs for an immediate refund. Shawn Buckley can be reached directly at shawnb@JustFoodForDogs.com or 949-378-2927.
