On the 4th of April 2019, the Thogerson family farm just recalled some of the can food because it contains Listeria. The company had announced it on this date but the FDA approved it on the 9th of April 2019.
These frozen foods like the courses of ground rabbit, ground mallard duck, ground llama, and ground pork frozen raw pet food were the affected ones. The packets are of two pounds that affected and were distributed to an individual and two other retailers who have been informed. There are specific no codes or labels or expiry dates for the affected products identification.
The reason, Thogerson Family farm recalled these products were because of listeria that is harmful for both, animals and humans. For animals, if taken intake of listeria monocytogenes can cause them to feel lethargic and suffer from vomiting and blood diarrhea. Some may suffer from loss of appetite and the pets that are healthy and are not affected by it; they can pass it on to other pets and humans. Another way for human to be effected is by touching the lid or the packet and not washing hand properly later.
They elaborated in their recall that listeria effects both in different ways. For humans, it can be very harmful as it causes many infections that could be serious and fatal, most in young children.
