Bravo Chicken Blend Raw Frozen Food

Bravo is voluntarily recalling its 2-pound tubes of Bravo Raw Food Diet Chicken Blend for Dogs and Cats, product code: 21-102, batch ID code 6 14 12, because it has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

The recall involves 2-pound Bravo Chicken Blend frozen raw diet tubes (chubs) made on June 14, 2012, only; no other products or sizes are involved. This product was distributed nationwide through pet stores and online outlets. At this time, no health problems have been reported.

If you have this product in your house, return unopened frozen tubes of food to the store where purchased for a full refund. If you have opened tubes of the product, dispose of the food in a safe manner and return the washed plastic batch ID tag to the store where you bought it for a full refund.

No health problems have been reported at this time.

For more information on the Bravo recall, please visit Bravo's website, or call toll free (866) 922-9222 Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.

Pet food companies get a lot of flack for releasing recall announcements on Fridays when they supposedly get little media attention. Diamond announced its recall on Monday, March 11, and Bravo announced its recall on Thursday, March 14.
