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.

Zoo calls for volunteers in its hour of need

 As ZSL London Zoo begins to get back on its feet, the organisation is putting out a call for volunteers who have time to help out. It comes after three months of unprecedented closure, which has seen zoos across the UK come under enormous financial pressure.

Volunteers will be required to commit to a minimum of half a day each fortnight, helping to assist zoo visitors as they make their way around. Volunteer manager Rhiannon Green said: "We need cheery, flexible people who can help visitors enjoy their day while respecting the measures that keep everyone safe.

For more information, visit zsl.org. Posts are available at both London and Whipsnade Zoos.

BSAVA webinars to shine the spotlight on selected journal papers

A free series of webinars that take a closer look at selected papers published in the Journal of Small Animal Practice has been produced by the BSAVA.

In the new BSAVA Science webinar series, authors of the featured papers discuss their results with a panel and how they may impact clinical practice. The authors then answer questions submitted by audience members.

The webinars are available via the BSAVA Webinar Library, covering four different papers. JSAP editor Nicola Di Girolamo, said: "Discussing the research with the authors - experts in their field - really helps to bring the papers to life."
