Raw pet food company issues third recall
FSA said the products could carry a potential risk to humans as well as pets.

Salmonella found in seven batches of food

A raw pet food company has issued its third recall of products in the past month, this time due to the presence of Salmonella in seven batches of food.

Raw Treat Pet Food Ltd recalled four batches of its frozen pet food on 30 July, after Listeria monocytogenes had been found in the products.

On 13 August, the company issued another recall of nine batches, owing to the presence of Salmonella.

A third recall issued on Friday (30 August) is withdrawing seven batches of frozen raw beef pet food after Salmonella was found in the products.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said the products could carry a potential risk to humans as well as pets. If any of the affected products have been purchased, FSA advises pet owners not to use them, but to return them from the shop where they were bought.

Extra hygiene precautions should always be followed when handling or serving raw pet food.

Affected batches:

Restriction zone lifted at Suffolk chicken farm

A one-kilometre restriction zone around a commercial chicken farm in mid-Suffolk has been lifted, following the completion of surveillance testing for avian influenza H5N3 with negative results.

Some 27,000 birds on the premises were culled after a veterinary surgeon identified the disease while investigating a fall in egg production. Poultry keepers are urged to take action to reduce the risk of disease in their flock by following government advice on biosecurity.
