Unfortunately, pet food recalls are a regular fact of life these days. From mold and bacteria (like Salmonella), to toxic substances and actual objects in the food (like metal pieces), the list of contaminants is nearly endless. And while some may just cause an upset stomach, others may be life threatening!
There are three good web sites for current pet food recall information (as well as our list below): The FDA Recalls and Withdrawals site and Pet Food Industry.com, and Dogfoodadvisor.com (and all three allow you to sign up for recall alerts).
Find current dog food recall and cat food recall and withdrawal information posted from the FDA and petfoodindustry.com are below (the petfoodindustry.com list is an addition to the FDA list). We will try to keep this page updated regularly, but please let us know if you hear of anything not listed!
Current Pet Food Recalls and Withdrawals
The warning was issued because a recent sample collected from a retail store in the District of Columbia tested positive for Salmonella… and because the affected food represents a serious threat to human and animal health.

The relevant product includes one lot of the following product:
Lot codes to help identify the product are printed on the lower right corner of the front of the bag.
In August 2019, the Agency also issued a public health advisory after one lot each of two varieties of Aunt Jeni’s frozen raw pet food tested positive for Salmonella and/or Listeria monocytogenes.
If you have any of the affected Aunt Jeni’s Home Made product, stop feeding it to your pet, throw it away, and sanitize surfaces that may have come in contact with the product.
Consumers who have had this product in their homes should clean refrigerators and freezers where the product was stored… as well as clean and disinfect all bowls, utensils, food prep surfaces, pet bedding, toys, floors, and any other surfaces that the food or pet may have had contact with.
Since animals can shed the bacteria in their stools, it’s important to clean up the animal’s feces in yards or parks where people or other animals may become exposed.
Consumers should thoroughly wash their hands after handling the affected product or cleaning up contaminated items and surfaces.
