Northwest Farm Food Cooperative of Burlington, Wash., is voluntarily recalling frozen raw cat food due to a potential Salmonella contamination. No illnesses have been reported to date.
The affected products were sold from the company’s manufacturing facility in 50-pound blocks and cases of six 10-pound chubs; they were packaged in a white plastic bag labeled “Cat Food.” The products affected by this recall have the production code Jul12015B (found on the outside of the case/box) and have no UPC code.
The recall was the result of a sampling done by the Food and Drug Administration which revealed that the finished product contained the bacteria. The company has ceased the production and distribution of the product as FDA and the company continues their investigation as to what caused the problem.
Consumers who have purchased the above lots of frozen raw cat food are urged to stop feeding them immediately and return the product to place of purchase for a full refund, or dispose of the remaining contents in a sealed container. For further information about the recall, contact the company at (360) 757-4225, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST.
