Popular Raw Pet Food Recalled Due To Possible Listeria Contamination

5 Signs Your Dog Needs a Probiotic

A voluntary recall has been issued by K9 Natural for some varieties of its dog food due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

Listeria is a form of bacteria that can result in a condition called listeriosis in pups. Symptoms may include vomiting, diarrhea, fevers, respiratory difficulties, muscular difficulties, abortion during pregnancy, and may even result in fatalities.

Humans can also become infected by listeria, and symptoms mirror those you might notice in dogs, though humans are also at risk for arterial infections and endocarditis if untreated.

A statement from K9 Natural expressed disappointment due to situation having occurred, and stated that the company, which considers safety and quality to be its topmost priority, will be working to ensure that all products sold will continue to have good, high quality and be safe for consumption.
