It was announced last week that Bravo! is recalling some boxes of its Pig Ears Chews. The company decided to announce the voluntary recall because of a potential for Salmonella contamination. Bravo! said that the recall affects the 50-count bulk oven-roasted Pig Ears that were sold on the East and West coasts in the beginning of this year. As a Fort Lauderdale Products Liability Injury Lawyer and as a dog owner, I know the importance of preventing our pets from suffering an illness, which is why I wanted to discuss this recall. The total number of units being recalled is not known at this time.
According to the FDA Bravo! Pig Ears Dog Chews Recall Release the bacteria was discovered during a routine sampling. This recall can be scary for anyone who fed their pet this product, because as anyone who owns a pet knows, we become very attached to our pets and we take their health very seriously. As a Fort Lauderdale Injury Lawyer I felt that it was necessary to talk about this recall because Salmonella can not only harm animals, but also humans. According to the recall, humans are at risk just from handling the contaminated pet products.
Luckily, Bravo! says that it has not received any reports of illness in people or animals, which is great news. It will be very fortunate if this recall can be completed without any pets or people becoming ill because Bravo! said that pets who become infected with Salmonella could experience symptoms such as decreased appetite, decreased energy, bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Obviously for us pet owners this would be heartbreaking to witness, so it would truly be great if all illnesses are avoided. As a Fort Lauderdale Products Liability Injury Attorney I hope that Bravo! is right that this is a one time incident and that there are no other imminent pet food recalls from this company.
