Jennifer Boniface received a bachelor’s degree in animal science before becoming a certified public accountant for a few years. Over time, her goals shifted back to animal nutrition, and she returned to school and obtained a master’s degree in animal nutrition science. She found that most people with pets declined to make homemade meals because of a perceived lack of time.

Has Aunt Jeni’s Pet Food Ever Been Recalled?
No. This brand has never been recalled.
However, in August 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cautioned consumers not to feed certain lots of Aunt Jeni’s Home Made Turkey Dinner Dog Food and Chicken Dinner Dog Food. The FDA said samples had tested positive for salmonella or listeria.
The affected products were:
- Aunt Jeni’s Home Made Turkey Dinner Dog Food, 5 lb., Lot #175199, best by July 2020
- Aunt Jeni’s Home Made Chicken Dinner Dog Food, 5 lb., Lot #1152013, best by July 2020
“Based on the test results, the Maryland Department of Agriculture issued a stop sale for these products on Aug. 20, 2019, preventing their further distribution. The FDA is advising the public about these products because these lots of Aunt Jeni’s Home Made frozen raw pet food represent a serious threat to human and animal health,” according to the FDA announcement.
