OC Raw Dog Company Overview

OC Raw Dog was founded in 2008 and incorporated the following year by Olivia Hudson and her family of dog breeders and enthusiasts.

Gatherings to grind meat and prepare homemade dog food were routine, and eventually demand surpassed supply. The family members started manufacturing the raw diet on a much larger scale and still make the formulas in California.

OC Raw Dog makes both dog and cat foods now.

Has OC Raw Dog Ever Been Recalled?

There have been a number of OC Raw Dog recalls, according to our research.

In April 2018, OC Raw Dog announced two voluntary recalls on the same day — one due to possible listeria contamination and the other concerning oversized sardines, as part of the OC Raw Dog recall efforts. The FDA highlighted that larger fish, like the sardines in question, pose an increased risk of botulism poisoning, which can be fatal to pets, prompting the OC Raw Dog recall for safety reasons.

Previously, OC Raw Dog had 2 separate recalls in 2015 for products that may have been contaminated with salmonella.

OC Raw Dog Recall History

April 2018
Cause: Potential for listeria; potential for Clostridium botulinumAnnouncement: FDA announcements dated April 20, 2018 (archived here and here). What was recalled: The following products:

  • OC Raw Dog Chicken, Fish & Produce Meaty Rox, 3 lb., UPC #022099069171, Lot #3652, Best by Oct. 11, 2018
  • OC Raw Dog Chicken, Fish & Produce Doggie Sliders, 4 lb., UPC #095225852640, Best by Oct. 11, 2018
  • OC Raw Dog Chicken, Fish & Produce Doggie Dozen Patty Bag, 6.5 lb., UPC #022099069225, Best by Oct. 11, 2018
  • OC Raw Dog Chicken, Fish & Produce Meaty Rox, 7 lb., UPC #095225852756, Best by Oct. 11, 2018
  • OC Raw Dog Freeze Dried Sardines, 3.2 oz. bag, UPC #095225853043

OC Raw Dog announced the above as 2 separate voluntary recalls. The Chicken, Fish & Produce Raw Frozen Canine Formulation had the potential for listeria contamination — a state agriculture department reported a positive test for listeria in a sample of the food.

The second OC Raw Dog recall, for the Freeze Dried Sardines, stemmed from the fact that the fish were larger than the FDA compliance guideline of 5 inches. The federal safety agency says larger fish like this carry a higher risk of botulism poisoning.
