USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is launching new efforts to help prevent the introduction and spread of African swine fever in the U.S. Through an outreach and awareness campaign called “Protect Our Pigs,”

African swine fever is a deadly, highly contagious viral disease that affects both domestic and wild pigs. It does not impact human health but quickly spreads between swine populations. People can also unknowingly spread the disease on their clothing, farming equipment, or by transporting uncooked pork products. African swine fever has never been detected in the U.S. but has recently been confirmed in countries as close as the Dominican Republic and Haiti. There is no treatment or effective vaccine for the disease.

Prop 12 news court says it's interstate commerce and has to go, it's going to Supreme Court. Details see Foodie corner post # 531. This is a really really important decision.

US recall
Stormberg Foods LLC Recalls Chicken Strips and Chicken Crisps Products for Dogs - list of products below



Note this is for a potential contamination of Salmonella. On July 6, 2022, the firm was notified by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services (NCDA & CS) that a sample they collected tested positive for Salmonella spp.

Took them long enough after they were notified to make the call.

Europe coastal UK and France - Almost every country in Europe has had cases in the latest outbreak, as well as those in North America, West Africa, and Asia. Be aware - for birds within reach of the coast. The super spreader of nesting, enhanced by the closely placed nests. Particularly Scotland. Watch for seabirds coming near your personal flocks. Terrible.

Bell says she has never heard of an asymptomatic bird with the virus and therefore doesn’t think wild birds would be able to spread it over long distances. She believes the international poultry trade is the main driver of the virus and says stopping imports of chicks and birds for the trade would be an important step in reducing the risk of future outbreaks. “Originally, it was poultry to wild birds; it was not wild birds which were spreading it. It was frustrating to see wild birds being blamed … We’ve got to get out of our heads that the wild birds are the bad guys here,” she says.

Though not a pet food, this is often given to dogs as a treat so I'm letting you know what's up with it.

Brazil Bassar Pet Food to make products that were then linked to illnesses in dogs.


According to the Civil Police of Minas Gerais, there are nine dogs dead who ate Bassar brand snacks. Six deaths occurred in Belo Horizonte, one in Piumhi, Minas Gerais and two in São Paulo. Media reports suggest up to 40 pet illnesses are being investigated.


Bassar Pet Food reported it had stopped production at its factory until the suspected contamination of products is clarified. A specialist company has been brought in to carry out an inspection of all production processes, raw materials and machinery at the plant in São Paulo.

DreamBone’s line of chews, which are made by conglomerate Spectrum Brands Holdings, is receiving disturbing reviews.
This is not a recall, but a "you might want to keep your eye on this matter"

“The FDA has received several dozen complaints associated with DreamBone,” a spokesperson said in a statement. “We are continuing to look into these complaints, but we can’t respond to each individual case.”
Note -The article mentions the midwestern pet food recalls. It should not, they do not seem to have anything to do with this matter.

Dog owners claim treats are making pups violently ill — and may have killed one pet (msn.com)

Again, this is not a recall, but a 'keep your eye on this' note.
