STATESVILLE, NC. — Raw pet food producer Blue Ridge Beef announced an expansion of its pet food recall on Jan. 3. 

The company originally issued a voluntary recall on Dec. 21 in collaboration with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). On Dec. 21, recalled products included Blue Ridge Beef Kitten Grind (UPC 8 54298 00101 6), Kitten Mix (UPC 8 54298 00243 6) and Puppy Mix (UPC 8 54298 00169 6). Recalled lot numbers for all three products range from N24 1114 to N24 1224. 

The recall has been updated to include an additional UPC of Kitten Mix (UPC 8 54298 00143 6), as well as additional states where the products were distributed. All recalled products were distributed in Connecticut, Maryland, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio, Oregan, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Wisconsin between Nov. 14 and Dec. 20.

On Dec. 15, the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services determined one lot of each sampled product tested positive for Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes. These foodborne pathogens pose health risks to humans and sometimes pets.

Blue Ridge Beef has recalled all lots between N24 1114 and N24 1224 “out of an abundance of caution,” according to the FDA. No illnesses related to the recalled product have been reported.
