Arrow Reliance Inc. (ZooLogics Pet Food And Darwin’s Natural Pet Products) Investigated by FDA

Arrow Reliance Inc. (ZooLogics Pet Food And Darwin’s Natural Pet Products) Investigated by FDA

February 13, 2018 – FDA and Washington Department of Agriculture is investigating Arrow Reliance Inc. for a string of Salmonella and Listeria Monocytogenes contamination in raw pet food manufactured by companies like Darwin’s Natural Pet Products and ZooLogics Pet Food.

From October 16, 2016 to February 10, 2018 there has been numerous salmonella and listeria contamination recalls of raw food from the same companies.

The latest of these recalls was made on February 10 2018 where Arrow Reliance (Darwin’s Naturals) recalled ZooLogics Duck with vegetable meals for Dogs (lot # 41957) and Zoologics Chicken with vegetables meals for dogs (lot # 41567) due to salmonella. And this is what the Gary Tashjian, the Founder of Darwin’s Pet Product, had to say about the recent recall.

Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes can affect animals eating the contaminated products and humans are also at risk after handling the products, especially if you don’t wash your hands thoroughly with soap afterward.

Notes:
  • The company states that they only sell their products online through direct-to-customer-sales.
  • Six complaints of illness and death in animals has been investigated by the FDA regarding this latest recall.

Follow up testing by FDA’s Vet-LIRN on the dog and the food confirmed the presence of salmonella.
