Stella and Chewy’s Dog Food Alert, December 2015

Share Button

stellachewys_recallStella & Chewy’s is voluntarily recalling four of its products sold in the U.S. and Canada due to concerns of a possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes. The recall affects a total of 990 cases (964 cases in the U.S and 26 cases in Canada). The recall was prompted by a positive test confirming Listeria monocytogenes in Stella’s Super Beef Dinner Morsels for Dogs 8.5 oz. frozen bags, lot #165-15, “Use by 6-25-2016”, during routine surveillance testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

 

Of note, this is the second Stella and Chewy’s incident related to Listeria since July 2015, when the Maryland Department of Agriculture announced on its website that they have issued a stop sale order on Stella and Chewy’s freeze dried chicken patties dog food, which has tested positive of Listeria monocytogenes.

 

As a precautionary measure, Stella & Chewy’s is voluntarily recalling all products from Lot # 165-15, which includes:

 

Product Description Size UPC Lot # Use By
Frozen Stella’s Super Beef Dinner Morsels for Dogs 8.5 oz. 186011 001554 165-15 6/25/2016
Frozen Stella’s Super Beef Dinner Morsels for Dogs 4 lb. 186011 001370 165-15 6/25/2016 & 6/26/2016
Frozen Duck Duck Goose Dinner Morsels for Cats 1.25 lb. 186011 001455 165-15 6/25/2016

 

The Company is also recalling the food products listed below, even though they have not tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

 

Product Description Size UPC Lot # Use By
Frozen Chick Chick Chicken Dinner Morsels for Cats 1.25 lb. 186011 001448 160-15 7/2/2016
Frozen Chick Chick Chicken Dinner Morsels for Cats 1.25 lb. 186011 001448 152-15 7/2/2016

 

Listeria is dangerous to dogs and it can be deadly to humans, particularly small children, the elderly and people with auto immune disorders.  Consumers who have unopened bags of this dog food should keep it sealed and to throw it away. For those who have opened bags, use disposable gloves to place the bag in a doubled up plastic bag before sealing and discarding in the trash.  The food should be discarded in the outdoor trash containers and out of the home altogether.

  2. I hate to hear that about Stella & Chewy’s. I have used their products and the dogs really liked it. Unfortunately, that is one too many recalls for me. We use Dr. Harvey’s now and they have never had a recall.
