Raw pet food recalled owing to presence of Salmonella
The recall comes after the raw food products were found to contain Salmonella.
Consumers urged to return products for a full refund

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued a product recall alert for Homeland By Products Ltd frozen raw beef, tripe and turkey pet food products.

The recall comes after the products were found to contain Salmonella and affects the following batches:


Product Batch no. Expiry date
Frozen raw beef 1510 May 2021
Frozen raw turkey 1513 May 2021
Frozen raw tripe 1518 May 2021


The Food Standards Agency writes: ‘Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause illness in humans and animals. The product could, therefore, carry a potential risk, because of the presence of salmonella, either through direct handling of the pet food, or indirectly, for example from pet feeding bowls, utensils or contact with the faeces of animals.

‘If you have bought any of the above products do not use them. Instead, return them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund.’

No other products by Homeland By Products Ltd are known to be affected.

SPANA film highlights plight of working animals overseas

Animal welfare charity SPANA (The Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad) has teamed up with Brian Blessed and other famous voices to highlight the plight of working animals overseas.

In a new animated film, the celebrities raise awareness by showing the solidarity of the UK's own working animals on strike. A sniffer dog (Brian Blessed), police horse (Peter Egan) and sheepdog (Deborah Meaden) are shown ignoring their duties and protesting in solidarity with animals in developing countries.

SPANA chef executive Geoffrey Dennis said: "We are so grateful to Deborah, Peter and Brian for lending their voices to our new film, and for speaking up for millions of working animals overseas. SPANA believes that a life of work should not mean a life of suffering, and it is only thanks to people’s generosity and support that we can continue our vital work improving the lives of these animals."
