Owning a pet comes with a lot of responsibility. As a pet owner, you have to take care of your animal in the best way possible. One of the main things owners are tasked with is making sure their pet is eating the proper food and getting all the nutrients they need.

Now, a popular pet food company has just expanded their recall over fears of Salmonella and Listeria contaminations. The company in question is Columbia River Natural Pet Foods.

The recall is being put out on select products of frozen raw foods. The recalled products can be found below.

They are issuing a voluntarily recall for 261 packages of Cow Pie Lot # 72618 and 82 packages of Chicken & Vegetables Lot# 111518 fresh frozen meats for dogs and cats, produced in July 2018 and November 2018. The Cow Pie product comes in frozen 2 lbs. purple and white plastic bags with Lot# 72618 found on an orange sticker. The Chicken & Vegetables product comes in frozen 2 lbs. turquoise and white plastic bags with Lot # 111518 found on an orange sticker, according to the report.

"FDA officials say pets with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. They also say some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian," reported Fox5dc.

"Consumers who purchased the product should discontinue use of the product and return for a full refund or exchange by returning the product in its original packaging to place of purchase. Anyone with questions may contact the company at 360-834-6854 Monday – Friday from 8 a.m.- 4 p.m. P.S.T.," reported Fox.
