OC Raw Dog Recalls Freeze Dried Sardines Because Of The Potential To Cause Botulism

OC Raw Dog Recalls Freeze Dried Sardines Because Of The Potential To Cause Botulism

April 20, 2018 – OC Raw Dog, LLC of California is recalling its OC Raw Dog Freeze Dried Sardines product because of the potential to cause botulism. The fish have exceeded the FDA compliance guideline for fish larger than 5 inches.

The FDA has determined that salt-cured, dried, or fermented un-eviscerated fish larger than 5 inches have been linked to outbreaks of botulism poisoning between 1981 and 1987 and again in 1991. Because OC Raw Dog Freeze Dried Sardines are larger than 5 inches there is a possible health risk.

Botulism is a deadly disease caused by a toxin-producing bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum. The toxin itself is one of the most potent poisons known and can be fatal to both pets and humans. This is fatal not only when consumed but also when coming in contact with the areas that are exposed to the contaminated products. That is why FDA takes this so seriously. Read more about symptoms of Botulism down below.
