Raw pet food company, Bravo!, issued a voluntary recall of several brands of its dog and cat food products due to Salmonella and Listeria contamination. The Food and Drug Administration detected these contaminants in product samples during a review.

The company stated it has not received any reports of illness due to the recalled products.

Salmonella and Listeria can cause serious infections in pets. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, poor appetite and sluggishness. Pets exhibiting these symptoms should be taken to a veterinarian immediately. If cross-contamination occurs, humans can be affected by these bacteria as well, and may exhibit similar symptoms.

All of the recalled products are frozen raw food items for dogs and cats. They are:
