This affects America and Viva Raw products. Here's some information.
Viva Raw, located in North Carolina, has recalled five turkey-based cat and dog food products over risk of bacteria contamination, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has confirmed, adding that the affected products were distributed to pet owners in all 50 states and in Washington DC. - Mail Online.
Viva Raw, a pet food company based in Hillsborough, North Carolina, has issued a voluntary recall for several of its dog and cat food products due to potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. The affected products include:
  • Viva Turkey for Dogs Ground
  • Viva Turkey for Dogs Chunked
  • Viva Turkey for Cats
  • Viva Pure Turkey
  • Viva Beef & Turkey for Puppies
These products were manufactured under Lot 21244. Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious infections in pets and poses a health risk to humans as well. If you’ve purchased any of these products, please check the lot number and take appropriate precautions. 

Symptoms of Listeria infection in humans may include nausea, vomiting, fever, and diarrhea. Pregnant women and individuals with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable. If you suspect exposure, consult a healthcare provider.
