Why were these products recalled?
The FDA is reporting Listeria monocytogenes was found in 16 oz containers of two lots of Grass-Fed Beef and one lot of Free-Range Chicken Rad Cat and Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella were found in one 16 oz container of Free-Range Turkey. We are recalling the entire lots of these products (all sizes and samples). We are fully cooperating with the FDA investigation, their regulations and are voluntarily recalling all of these lots.
What is Listeria?
There are many types of Listeria, of which Listeria monocytogenes is only one. It is very commonly found in the environment, mostly outdoors, in soil and even in our homes, as it is easily carried in on the soles of our shoes and the feet of our cats and dogs. Sometimes it can be found in processing environments and on many agricultural products, such as fruits, vegetables and even on raw meat ingredients, poultry and fish.
What is Salmonella?
Salmonella is a bacteria that we commonly hear about associated with poultry products, but it can also be present in many other foods and in the environment. It occurs mainly in the intestine and poultry can contract this organism through feed and other sources in their environment.
