Maker: Blue Ridge Beef
Cause: Potential for salmonella and listeria
Announcement: FDA report dated March 1, 2018 (archived here)
What was recalled: 2 lb. chubs of Kitten Grind frozen raw cat food, Lot #GA1102 (you can find the lot number on the clips at each end of the chubs), manufactured Nov. 2, 2017

Unfortunately, this recall was initiated because of deadly circumstances: According to the FDA, the agency received a complaint of 2 kitten deaths, including 1 confirmed salmonella death. Subsequent tests were positive for both salmonella and listeria.

The lot contains 20 cases or 300 chubs of product and would affect Texas, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and North Carolina.

The FDA added, “Consumers are encouraged to check the clips of product to ensure that they possess the affected Lot #GA1102. Those who have purchased the lot of Kitten Grind are urged to stop feeding them and return products to the place of purchase for a full refund or dispose of them immediately.
