JustFoodForDogs Dog Food Recalled Due To Contamination From Listeria

Three frozen food flavors from the brand JustFoodForDogs are being recalled due to the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

If that is not scary enough, the ingredient found to be contaminated in the samples were the “human-grade” green beans. The recall was announced on the company’s Facebook page. They also said they had reached out to customers with in-store signs, direct mail, and email. The people who handle the dog food are at risk too. Anything that comes into contact with the dog food (countertops, utensil, bowls, and hands) can become contaminated.

Listeria monocytogenes will probably not cause any serious illness in dogs, but it is very dangerous for children, pregnant women, the elderly, or those with suppressed immune systems. JustFoodForDogs tested their food when a loyal customer had told them her dogs got sick. The woman reported that the “Turducken” flavor caused her dogs to vomit and have diarrhea.

The three flavors that are being recalled are listed below and were made between November 1, 2017, and January 14, 2018:

Beef and Russet Potato
Fish and Sweet Potato


JustFoodForDogs gave the results of their tests to the Food and Drug Administration, and it is likely that the human-grade green beans will soon be recalled. JustFoodForDogs is urging all consumers to stop feeding their dogs the food and discard any food that is left over. An immediate and unconditional credit is being offered to customers from the company headquartered in Los Alamitos, CA. Send an email (support@justfoodfordogs.com) for credit via email.
