Pet Product Recalls: Possible Salmonella Contamination

Pet Product Recalls: Possible Salmonella Contamination

Pig Ears

Dog Goods has issued a voluntary recall of their 30-packs of Berkley & Jensen pig ears. The FDA is currently investigating ties between human cases of Salmonellosis and pig ear pet treats.

Although the recall is specifically for humans and Salmonella exposure, it’s important to know that pets can get sick as well. The symptoms are the same for both pets and humans: fever, vomiting, diarrhea, blood in diarrhea and tiredness.

If you have purchased Berkley & Jensen pig ears, please return them to the retail location for a full refund.

Another company voluntarily recalling its pig ear dog treats is TDBBS.

In a statement, the company said “as a strictly precautionary measure and because of our company’s strong commitment to the health and well-being of pets, TDBBS is conducting a voluntary recall of a limited distribution of two pig ear pet products sold through — USA Thick Pig Ear 8-Pack and USA Thick Pig Ear 20-Pack.”

The packages involved in this recall have UPC codes of X001768PNB and X000RBC5VF with best-by dates between 4/22/21 and 8/05/21.

So far no illnesses to pets or humans have been reported.

Pet Supplies Plus and Lennox Intl, Inc. have also recalled their pig ear treats over this concern.

Performance Dog Frozen Pet Food

The FDA has issued a warning that all dog owners who’ve purchased Performance Dog frozen raw pet food produced on or after July 22, 2019, should promptly discard it. Two samples of their products that were collected during an inspection have tested positive for both salmonella and listeria monocytogenes.

The recall, which highlights the 2-pound packages, includes all flavors sold by the company. Since the products don’t have lot codes, the FDA says it’s safer to just throw the food away.

Salmonella and listeria can affect both animals and humans.
