Bravo Pet Food Recall Alert, December 2015
Bravo Pet Foods of Manchester, CT is recalling a select lot of Bravo Chicken Blend diet for dogs & cats with a best used by date of 11/13/16 due to concerns of the possible presence of Salmonella . Out of an abundance of caution, Bravo is also recalling three additional items that did not test positive for Salmonella , but were manufactured on the same day.
This is now the sixth recall by Bravo since 2013- there were recalls in March and April 2013, and May and September 2014, and most recently July 2015. I don’t know what is going on at their production facility, but it seems that there are systemic issues that need to be addressed.
