Bravo Pet Foods recalls several brands, lots

The Bravo Pet Food company is recalling several brands and lots due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The government said the voluntary recall was issued after an independent lab detected the bacteria in a sample during a recent review.

"The company has received a limited number of reports of dogs experiencing nausea and diarrhea that may be associated with these specific products," according to the Food and Drug Administration.

Bravo Pet Foods are sold nationwide in retail stores and by internet retailers.

The batch ID code (best used by date) is printed on the side of the plastic tube or on a label on the box.
