Why recalled? The products were recalled due to the potential contamination of bacteria Listeria monocytogenes. 


  • This is a voluntary recall and is the first recall ever in the history of this company.
  • After a customer reported that ‘Turducken’ caused her dog to be sick with vomiting and diarrhea, the company initiated their investigation and found that the ‘human-grade green bean supply’ was contaminated with Listeria.
  • Shawn Buckley, the Founder said that the company is also “notifying the FDA as this may likely affect a broader human food supply of green beans.”

About Listeria monocytogenes:

  • Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
  • Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
  • Healthy cats and dogs rarely become sick from Listeria. If animals get ill with Listeria they will display symptoms similar to the ones listed above for humans.
  • People who have concerns about whether their pet has Listeria should contact a veterinarian.
