In collaboration with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Blue Ridge Beef, a raw pet food producer, issued a voluntary recall on December 21. This recall encompasses various batches of three 2-pound raw pet food chubs tailored for kittens and puppies.

The affected products, namely Blue Ridge Beef Kitten Grind (UPC 8 54298 00101 6), Kitten Mix (UPC 8 54298 00243 6), and Puppy Mix (UPC 8 54298 00169 6), share recalled lot numbers ranging from N24 1114 to N24 1224. These products were distributed in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia between November 14 and December 20.

On December 15, the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services identified that one lot of each sampled product had tested positive for Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes, posing health risks to both humans and, on occasion, pets.

“Out of an abundance of caution,” Blue Ridge Beef decided to recall all lots between N24 1114 and N24 1224, according to the FDA. To date, there have been no reported illnesses associated with the recalled product.
