Raw dog food firm recalls products for second time within a month

A raw dog food firm has recalled a range of its frozen meals because they may pose a risk to health. It’s the second time within a month that Happy Hounds has taken such action.


A statement on the Food Standards Agency said:


Happy Hounds is recalling a range of its frozen raw dog food products on a precautionary basis as they may pose a risk to human and animal health. Sampling undertaken by the company has identified elevated levels of bacteria indicating a potential risk. A withdrawal and recall have been actioned by the company.
