    We all want our dogs to eat good food, but this brand of dog food needs to be avoided. Check out the article we found over at I Heart Dogs.

    The FDA (Food & Drug Administration) just announced that Big Dog Natural of Brick, New Jersey is voluntary recalling a select production lot of Big Dog Natural raw dehydrated dog food Chicken Supreme potentially contaminated withSalmonella and Fish Supreme potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

    Big Dog Natural became aware of a potential issue after receiving notification from the FDA that a sample of Chicken Supreme tested positive for Salmonella and a sample of Fish Supreme for Listeria monocytogenes.

    Affected Product

    These products were sold directly to consumers through the company’s online website and in the US. The voluntarily recalled product include all weight volumes of:

    Big Dog Natural Chicken Supreme & Fish Supreme

    They were shipped in the week of 10/31/2015 to 11/13/2015

    No additional products are affected by this recall.

    Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

    Healthy people infected with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.

      I cook all my dogs food fresh from Whole Foods with organic steamed veggies and supplements from my holistic vet. My dog turned 18 years old on the 13th of January. There is no good dog food out there.

      I feed my Rotties 100% raw meat and bones supplemented with a green powder made up of alfalfa, barley grass juice, chlorella, purple dulse seaweed, spinach and nutritional yeast. I also give them raw eggs and coconut oil plus some fish oil. These dogs are the epitome of health and beauty. This would not be so on kibble or cooked food.
