Voluntary recall

D&D Commodities Ltd. said it has chosen to issue a voluntary recall of this product and is committed to providing high-quality, safe products for wild and domesticated birds and the people who love them. The company is committed to following strict protocols to ensure the safety of all who handle our products.

The recall notification is being issued based on a single manufacturing batch where a sample showed a positive result for Salmonella in a random sample test collected by the FDA on November 30, 2023. The 3-D Pet Product Premium parrot food was originally manufactured on October 25, 2023. D&D Commodities is taking immediate action to remove the product from retail distribution centers and to fully investigate the cause.

In a separate event on January 3, Blue Ridge Beef expanded the recall of its 2-lb. Kitten Grind, 2-lb. log of Kitten Mix and 2-lb. log of Puppy Mix products to an additional 16 states. Initially, the recall, announced after Salmonella and listeria were found in the products, covered only Connecticut, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland and Virginia.

Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is a risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans.
