Stella & Chewy's Voluntarily Recalls Products Due to Possible Health Risk

Jul 05, 2015, 13:35 ET from Stella & Chewy’s

MILWAUKEE, July 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Stella & Chewy's is voluntarily recalling some of its products due to concerns of a possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes. The recall was prompted by a positive test confirming Listeria monocytogenes in Chewy's Chicken Freeze-Dried Dinner Patties for Dogs, 15 ounce, Lot #111–15, during routine surveillance testing by the Maryland Department of Agriculture.

There have been no reported pet or human illnesses associated with this recall.

Listeria is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes 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.

As a precautionary measure, Stella & Chewy's is voluntarily recalling all products nationwide from
Lot # 111-15 which includes:
