Listeria monocytogenes can infect pets, although such infections are uncommon. Infected animals may display symptoms including mild to severe diarrhea, anorexia, fever, nervous,
muscular and respiratory signs, abortion, depression, shock, and death. Infected animals may shed Listeria monocytogenes in feces, contaminating the home environment and spreading the infection to humans and to other household pets.
No confirmed illnesses have been associated to date with these recalled products.
G & C is urging consumers who purchased any of these products to return them to G & C Raw, 225 N. West Street, Versailles, OH, for a full refund.
