BREAKING NEWS RECALL ALERT – Stella & Chewy’s Recalls Products Due To Listeria

Advertisement

 Stella & Chewy’s is voluntarily recalling four of its products sold in the U.S. and Canada due to concerns of a possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes. The recall affects a total of 990 cases (964 cases in the U.S. and 26 cases in Canada).

The recall was prompted by a positive test confirming Listeria monocytogenes in Stella’s Super Beef Dinner Morsels for Dogs (8.5 oz. frozen bags, lot #165-15, “Use by 6-25-2016”) during routine surveillance testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Listeria Risks

Listeria is not only dangerous to dogs, it can also be deadly to small children, the elderly and those with auto immune disorders.  Pregnant when are twenty times more susceptible to the disease and can cause miscarriages and stillbirths. For them, the only symptom may be a fever.

Symptoms to watch for in people:

  • Headache
  • Stiff neck
  • Confusion
  • Loss of balance
  • Convulsions
  • Fever
  • Muscle aches

The FDA claims dogs and cats rarely get listeriosis, but we urge pet owners to watch for similar symptoms in their pets and to take them to the vet should they pet seem ill.

If You Have Product

Retailers and consumers can find the full product recall list and additional information on the Stella & Chewy’s website.

Consumers should look at the product descriptions, UPCs, lot numbers, and “Use By” dates on each bag for an exact match to determine if it is subject to the recall. Anyone who has purchased these products are instructed to dispose of the food or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
