Performance Dog recallMaker: Bravo Packing, Inc.
Cause: Potential for salmonella
Announcement: FDA report dated Sept 13, 2018 (archived here)
What was recalled: All Performance Dog products, 2 lb. and 5 lb. plastic sleeves with date code 071418

According to the FDA report, Bravo Packing, Inc. of Carneys Point, New Jersey, is recalling this raw frozen dog food after a sample of Performance Dog, collected during an FDA inspection, tested positive for salmonella.

The manufacture date code (071418) is printed on the boxes that contain the plastic sleeves, but not on the individual plastic sleeves. “Therefore,” the report says, “if the cardboard box has been discarded, there are no unique identification numbers on the individual sleeves that allow customers to determine that they possess the recalled products.”


For that reason, if you bought this after July 14, 2018 and do not find a date code, “exercise caution and throw the product away,” the FDA advises.

No human or animal illnesses have been reported to date.
