|FDA Cautions Pet Owners Not to Feed Texas Tripe Inc. Raw Pet Food Due to Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenesThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration is cautioning pet owners not to feed their pets any of the Texas Tripe brand raw frozen pet food listed below because several samples of Texas Tripe raw pet food have tested positive for Salmonella and/or L. mono.
The Office of the Texas State Chemist (OTSC) collected 23 finished product samples at Texas Tripe Inc. Of the 23 samples, 16 tested positive for L. mono and/or Salmonella.
FDA followed up these findings with an inspection and collected and analyzed samples of unopened finished product, after the firm performed corrective actions, from additional lots of some of the same products tested by OTSC. FDA testing showed some of the samples contained Salmonella and/or L. mono.
