Raw pet food firm issues second recall in four weeks
10th February 2020

By Sandra Pearce

A raw pet food manufacturer in Wales has issued a recall for a range of its frozen raw dog food products because ‘they may pose a risk to health’.

This is the second recall by Happy Hounds in four weeks. The first, in the middle of January, was for three products due to the presence of salmonella.

In this latest, no further details were released about the exact nature of the ‘risk to health’.

A statement from the Food Standards Agency said: “Happy Hounds is recalling a range of its frozen raw dog food products on a precautionary basis as they may pose a risk to human and animal health.

“Sampling undertaken by the company has identified elevated levels of bacteria indicating a potential risk. A withdrawal and recall have been actioned by the company.”
