As we wrap up 2023 and prepare for a new year, another recall has been announced that affects a certain food that may have been sold in New York State.
Recall warnings have been frequent over the past few months. From baby seats and toys to applesauce and now pet food, there have been many recalls. Some have been voluntary and some are more serious.
The latest voluntary food recall is for pet food that may contain listeria or salmonella contamination.
Blue Ridge Beef Some of its Puppy Mix, Kitten Grind and Kitten Mix pet food specialties were recalled. The products were sold primarily in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York.
According to America Today:
The FDA says the products were distributed between November 14, 2023 and December 20, 2023 and sold primarily in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Blue Ridge Beef told the agency that to date, no illnesses associated with the recalled products have been reported.
The holidays can be a chaotic time for pet owners. However, it is an annual reminder that certain plants and foods are dangerous to pets. For example, Poinsettia plants. According to the AKC website, there is a mild risk to dogs.
Poinsettias are mildly poisonous plants and should definitely be used with caution, but risks from poinsettias are rarely serious or fatal.
