Stella & Chewy’s is recalling some of its products because a routine test found Listeria in a sample of its freeze-dried patties for dogs.
On its website, the company says that it was notified on July 2 by the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) that it issued a stop sale order on a single lot of Chewy’s Chicken Freeze-Dried Dinner Patties for Dogs, 15 oz. bags (Lot #111-15) because MDA detected Listeria monocytogenes in the product.
As a precautionary measure, the company says it is voluntarily recalling all products from Lot #111-15, as well as a number of products that may have been exposed to the affected lot.
The recalled products are:
Consumers who have a product that is part of the recall should return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund, or dispose of it.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
