Raw Food Dog Food Alert
It was just brought to our attention thanks to Pet360 Recall Alert that Bravo! has issued an alert for their “Blend and Balance Burgers” due to what is being called a short term manufacturing problem. The problem resulted in burgers with excess moisture that caused the individual burger packages to lump together. According the the alert the food is safe to feed and has not been compromised. If however you have any questions please contact the retailer where you purchased the food or contact the company directly 866-922-9222.

As with any food that an alert has been issued on if you have any questions or concerns please contact the manufacturer before feeding it to your dog. While the alert says it is safe it is best to get all of the facts. At this time I cannot find any other information about this alert or if the manufacturer has set up a way to exchange any food that you currently have in your possession with the above lot numbers. I looked on Facebook but there was no information being shared there or on their company website.
This alert should not be confused with their recall that was posted in April of this year for possible salmonella contamination. April 3, 2013 – Bravo! is voluntarily recalling three of its raw diet frozen foods for dogs and cats: 5 lb tubes of Bravo! Chicken Balance product item code 21-405 with “best used by” dates of 3_6_15 and 3_12_15; 2 lb Bravo! Chicken Blend product item code 21-102 with the “best used by” date of 3_21_15 and 5 lb. bags of Bravo! Beef Blend Burgers product item code 51-508 with the “best used by” dates of 3_21_15 and 3_22_15, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
If you know of a friend or family member potentially feeding this food please share this dog food alert with them so that they can make an informed decision about their pets well being.
