G & C Raw Expands Recall to Entire Product List

It has just come to our attention that on August 31, 2018, G & C Raw of Versailles, OH, expanded its early August product recall to include all product lots manufactured from February 27, 2018 through July 20, 2018 due to potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination. The expanded recall encompasses 29 products sold under the brand names G & C Raw Dog Food and G & C Raw Cat Food, which are sold directly to consumers in GA, IL, IN, KY, MI, NC, OH, PA, SC and TN.

The recall was as the result of a routine sampling program by the Ohio Department of Agriculture which revealed that some finished products contained the bacteria. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in animals eating the products and there is also risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products. To date, no confirmed illnesses have been reported in association with this recall.

The recall includes all products with lot numbers that end in 022718 through 072018. The manufacture dates are included at the end of the lot number. For example, product manufactured on February 27, 2018 would have a lot code that ends with 022718. The recalled products are:
