Texas Tripe Inc. has recalled nearly two dozen varieties of raw pet food products after samples tested positive for Salmonella and/or Listeria monocytogenes.
The recalled products are sold frozen in 20- and 40-pound cases; each case contains multiple plastic pouches (called “chubs”).
Lot codes are printed on the outside of the cases, but not on the chubs. Therefore, if the outer case has been discarded, there are no unique identification numbers on the individual chubs that allow customers to determine that they possess the recalled products. Consumers are encouraged to discard any product on the recall list, even if they cannot confirm the lot number.
The affected products were sold direct to consumers online and by phone in the following states:
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- New York
- North Carolina
Consumers who purchased any of the recalled products should stop feeding them to their pets and throw it away in a secure container where other animals, including wildlife, cannot access it. The FDA advises pet owners to clean and disinfect all surfaces that may have come in contact with the contaminated products.
