"Two samples of raw pet food -- one of Performance Dog and the other of a beef variety -- were taken by the FDA as a part of a routine inspection in the Bravo Packing, Inc. manufacturing facility in Carneys Point, New Jersey which had tested positive for contamination before in September 2018 prompting a recall at that time.

Hi Lynn... these kinds of things with pet food seem to be happening more and more often. I can't imagine losing one of my fur-babies to something like this.
