  • Bravo recalls chicken, turkey petfoods on possible Salmonella risk

    Release Date: Monday, September 29 , 2014

    Bravo is recalling select lots of Bravo Turkey and Chicken petfoods for dogs and cats because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

    The recall was initiated after routine testing by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture revealed the presence of Salmonella in two lots of product. This batch tested negative by a third party independent laboratory prior to release for distribution to consumers. The recalled products were distributed throughout the US beginning on Nov. 14, 2013 to distributors, retail stores, Internet retailers and directly to consumers. The products can be identified by the batch ID code (best used by date) printed on the side of the plastic tube. The products are:
