FDA Warning Pet Owners Not to Feed A+ Answers Straight Beef Formula for Dogs Due to Salmonella

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning pet owners not to feed A+ Answers Straight Beef Formula for Dogs, lot 2018 20/08 20, after the Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) tested and found Salmonella in the food. Lystn, LLC, also doing business as Answers Pet Food, is the brand owner of A+ Answers Straight Beef Formula for Dogs and has recalled the affected lot in Nebraska, but has not implemented a nationwide recall. The warning is issued because it represents a serious threat to human and animal health. The FDA is still working with Lystn to gather comprehensive distribution information and is issuing this warning to alert consumers about this public health risk. Pet foods contaminated with pathogens such as Salmonella are of particular public health importance because they can affect both human and animal health. Pets can get sick from Salmonella, and may also be carriers of the bacteria and pass it onto their humans. Federal law requires all pet food to be free of pathogens, including Salmonella. Pet food manufacturers must effectively manage sourcing of ingredients, processing and packing to control pathogens. Without effective control, such as cooking, raw pet food is more likely than other types of pet food to contain pathogens such as Salmonella. @ https://www.fda.gov/AnimalVeterinary/NewsEvents/CVMUpdates/ucm629447.htm?utm_campaign=1-14-2019-petfood&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua&elqTrackId=36D622A1932BECE560614F0F106491CC&elq=f241928b60264bd48af38b27a7ae770e&elqaid=6476&elqat=1&elqCampaignId=5284
