Raw pet food company issues further recalls
FSA said the products could carry a potential risk to humans as well as animals.

Nine batches recalled due to presence of Salmonella 

Pet food company Raw Treat Pet Food Ltd is recalling nine batches of its food after the products were found to contain Salmonella.

The news came less than two weeks after the company recalled four batches due to the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

Pet owners who have bought any of the affected products are advised not to use them, but to return them to the store from which they were bought for a full refund.

According to the Food Standards Agency (FSA), the products could carry a potential risk to humans as well as animals, either directly through handling of pet food, or indirectly from feeding bowls, utensils or contact with the animal’s faeces.

When handling and serving raw food, FSA advises cleaning utensils and feeding bowls after use and washing hands thoroughly after handling. Raw food should be stored separately from other food (especially ready to eat food). Care should also be taken when defrosting to avoid cross contamination of foods and surfaces.

Affected batches:

Pair of endangered Amur leopard cubs born at Colchester Zoo

News Story 1
 Keepers at Colchester Zoo are hailing the arrival of a pair of critically endangered Amur leopard cubs.

The cubs were born to first-time parents Esra and Crispin on the 9 September. This is the first time the Zoo has bred Amur leopard cubs on-site.

Amur leopards originate from the Russian Far East and north-east China. In the wild they are threatened by climate change, habitat loss, deforestation and the illegal wildlife trade.

The cubs are said to be “looking well” and are expected to emerge from their den in a few weeks.
