On August 9th, we posted an article about a recall of the Rad Cat Raw Diet Cat Food that just had two types involved. There is now an FDA update that covers all the types of this line of food – issued August 21, 2018.

In an expansion of previous recalls, now the entire product lineup shipped out within a 15-month period — all recipes, all sizes — has been recalled.

Maker: Radagast Pet Food, Inc.
Cause: Potential for listeria
Announcement: FDA report dated Aug. 21, 2018
What was recalled: The following Rad Cat Raw Diet products with lot numbers 62763 through 63101, in sizes ranging from 1 oz. samples to 8 oz., 16 oz. and 24 oz. packages:

  • Rad Cat Raw Diet Grass-Fed Beef Reciperad-cat-raw-diet-recall-2018-aug21
  • Rad Cat Raw Diet Free-Range Chicken Recipe
  • Rad Cat Raw Diet Pasture-Raised Lamb Recipe
  • Rad Cat Raw Diet Natural Pork Recipe
  • Rad Cat Raw Diet Free-Range Turkey Recipe
  • Rad Cat Raw Diet Pasture-Raised Venison Recipe

This is a significant expansion of a previous recall announced in July 2018, which was itself an expansion of yet another previous recall announced in March 2018.

Now, instead of just a few recipes (chicken, venison, turkey) and a handful of lot codes, the entire product lineup shipped out within a 15-month period — all recipes, all sizes — has been recalled.

The products were shipped to distributors in the United States and Canada between May 2017 and August 9, 2018. The packages are all stamped with “Best By” dates ranging from Oct. 19, 2018 to Dec. 3, 2019.

According to the FDA announcement, “The company has identified a source of potential contamination in its facility. The company has taken proactive measures to eradicate the source, and it is confident that its corrective actions have eliminated the source of potential contamination related to this recall.”

As with the previous recalls, Radagast Pet Food says no pet or human illnesses have been reported so far.
