Go into any brick and mortar pet store, and you will notice more and more freezers lining the aisles with raw pet food. Retail sales of raw food brands are growing steadily, as more and more cat and dog owners believe in the nutritional benefits of raw food.

The Scrutiny of Raw Pet Food
Of course, whenever anything gains popularity, there’s always scrutiny that follows. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently warned consumers that raw pet food can be dangerous to pets and humans because they are more likely to be contaminated with disease causing bacteria such as Salmonella. The FDA has taken a zero tolerance standard for Salmonella presence in food.
Our Response to the FDA Findings
At Boss Dog Brands, we understand the FDA is looking out for the safety of humans and pets. In fact, the FDA has done a phenomenal job educating the public on safe handling measures when it comes to raw food. But did you know there are safe handling instructions on all packaging of raw foods, whether it’s dog food, cat food or a roasted chicken for your family? It’s common societal knowledge that you need to handle raw food with special care. While there will also be folks with the opposing opinion we believe a raw diet far outweighs the negatives of coming in contact with unwanted bacteria.
