Cats say what? Food recalled for Salmonella, Listeria risks

A voluntary recall went out over the weekend for four different lots of cat food made by a Portland company.

sorenne.cats.aug.15Radagast Pet Food, Inc. recalled Rad Cat Raw Diet products, sold in 8, 16 and 24 ounce tubs, as well as given in 1 ounce sample cups. 

The company recalled the foods due to threats of Salmonella and Listeria contamination. Handling the products and not washing hands afterward could spread the bacteria to humans. 

The FDA third party contracted lab found two lots of Grass-Fed Beef tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes, one lot of Free-range Chicken tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes, and one lot of Free-range Turkey tested positive for Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes. As a precautionary measure, we are voluntarily recalling three products produced in these four lots.

All affected lot codes 62384, 62361, 62416, and 62372 and Best By dates are located on the lid of all products packaged in tubs and on the bottom of the sample cups.

The following recalled products were distributed in western Canada and all US States except in Hawaii and Mississippi.

If you have the cat food, you’re being asked to not return them to the store, but rather , throw them away. To get a refund, fill out the claim form at and return the form to the store where you purchased it for a refund.

Pet Food Recall Trifecta

There have recently been 2 previous recalls due to pet food. Ok, one of them was dog vitamins but it still counts as a trifecta.

In the latest pet food recall, Feline’s Pride (cat food) is recalling its chicken formula due to salmonella contamination (right, exactly as shown).

The product is packaged in uncoded plastic containers and sold frozen to private consumers nationwide. Once thawed, the pet food has a shelf life of about 1 week. The firm manufactures the pet food by an as-ordered basis. This recall affects only those orders placed and shipped from June 10 through June 17, 2010.

Wash your hands after handling your pet food, especially if its contaminated with salmonella.
