    G & C Dog and Cat Food Recall Expands to Include Multiple Brands

    No product images have been provided by either the company or the Food and Drug Administration.

    About Listeria
    Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in animals eating the products.

    Furthermore, 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 Listeria monocytogenes should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, aches, fever, and diarrhea.

    Listeria monocytogenes infections can cause serious andsometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

    Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

    Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

    Pets with Listeria monocytogenes infections are rare, and pets may display symptoms such as mild to severe diarrhea, anorexia, fever, nervous, muscular and respiratory signs, abortion, depression, shock, and death.

    In addition to the possibility of becoming sick, such infected animals can shed Listeria monocytogenes through their feces onto their coats and into the home environment and thus serve as sources of infection to humans and other animals in the household.

    If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

    I haven't fed raw since LingLing died of clostridium bacteria. I was feeding raw at the time of her death.

    Maggie been eating Fromm and gets couple of times a week a little Sardine in the eve, she loves it. The yorkie show breeder i know in Alabama feeds Fromm to her gang. I never heard of this food, i asked my Natural Pet Store and she said they don't need to averdise. She loves Fish and if i don't put anything on her food she won't eat so Petstore ave me a sample of dehydrated Salmon and it comes in the size to a nipple and you can crumble it in-between my fingers. When she goes in for a check up i will ask my vet, i don't want a repeat...
