Recalled: Vital Essentials Beef Toppers and Beef Entrée

This is the 4th recall of Vital Essentials in the past 3 years, and salmonella is once again to blame.

Maker: Carnivore Meat Company
Cause: Potential for salmonella
Announcement: Customer email dated April 16, 2018
What was recalled: The following 2 varieties and dates of Vital Essentials:

  • Freeze-Dried Beef Toppers (for dogs and cats), 6 oz. packages, Lot #13815, Best by June 4, 2019 or June 20, 2019
  • Frozen Beef Chub Entrée for Dogs, 5 lb. chubs, Lot #13816, Best by Dec. 27, 2018

According to the email, which Petful has confirmed with a company spokesperson, this recall arose out of concern that some of the products may be contaminated with salmonella.

“A single package of product, which was produced on the same day, was collected and tested by FDA for the presence of salmonella,” the email stated, adding: “We expect that very few, if any, packages remain in the market.”
