The dates on mine are blurred so it might be within the timeframe or not. Can't read for sure if it said 2015 or 2016.....

katdog5911 Spoke to my vet and an ER vet tech at a different facility. Also called Bravo. My understanding after speaking to them is that the threat is greater for me or whoever handled the food. Normally a healthy dog should not get listeria. I did however let the boarding facility know the situation. Fortunately a friend of mine works there and will watch Stella carefully. I also let my vet know that the boarding facility has permission to treat Stella in the event of an emergency.

The food I had did not test positive for listeria but is being recalled as a precaution, as it was made in the same facility on the same day. I think it was beef and turkey that was affected. I had lamb and Stella turned her nose up at it. She may have eaten some....really not sure. She seems ok and acting normally. No diarrhea or vomiting.

Neither vet I spoke to suggested antibiotics as a precaution...

Anubis_Star Listeria can be life threatening. She can be started on a course of antibiotics as a preventative measure.

Otherwise make sure the boarding facility works with an emergency vet that she could be taken to if she did get sick, I would contact said vet to approve treatment just in case, and then make sure the boarding kennel keeps a close eye on her. ANY signs of illness, lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, circling, drooping face, etc... she should be taken to a vet immediately and started on treatment.

Bravo Recall....listeria....should I be worried?

Just got a recall notice from Bravo. Of course I have some of the recalled product. And of course I fed it to my girl earlier this week. And of course I am going on vacation tomorrow and Stella is being boarded. I am freaking out!!!
Funny thing is she didn't really eat the food when I gave it to her. But when I gave her different food, she did.
Should I be worried? Please say no.....
