Radagast Pet Food, makers of Rad Cat Raw, is recalling specific lots of their Chicken and Venison raw cat food.
The recall was issued after followup sampling and testing found that 3 lots of the Chicken formula may contain Listeria bacteria. One lot of Venison could contain a type of E. coli bacteria which is not harmful to cats or dogs but could be harmful to humans if ingested.
The sampling was done as part of an enhanced followup testing procedure implemented after the March 2018 recall.
The affected lots are:
- 8 oz, 16 oz and 24 oz Free-Range Chicken with Best By date of 10/9/19 (Lot 63057)
- 8 oz, 16 oz and 24 oz Free-Range Chicken with Best By date of 10/23/19 (Lot 63069)
- 8 oz, 16 oz and 24 oz Free-Range Chicken with Best By date of 10/31/19 (Lot 63076)
- 8 oz, 16 oz and 24 oz Pasture-Raised Venison with Best By date of 10/15/19 (Lot 63063)
The Best By date can be found on the lid rim and the lot number can be found on the bottom of each tub.
No other formulas or lot numbers are affected by this recall. There have been no reports of any illness associated with these lots or any other Rad Cat formulas.
You have been contacted if you received any Chicken or Venison from Smiley Dog in the past 4 months. If you have purchased Rad Cat Chicken or Venison elsewhere recently and have on of the affected lots, return it to the place of purchase for a refund or replacement.
