The FDA warns against all Performance Dog raw pet food produced after July 22, saying it "represents a serious threat to human and animal health," the statement states.
Bravo Packing, Inc. also tested positive for pollution in September 201[ads1]8, which calls for a recall.
Dog food has been examined by the FDA this year – not over concerns for bacteria, but heart disease.
The FDA has examined more than 500 cases of extended cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dogs who eat certain types of food, according to their statement.
DCM is a condition that affects the dog's heart and results in an enlarged muscle. Dogs with DCM are easily covered, cough and have difficulty breathing.
