November 1, 2013 — Bailey’s Choice Dog Treats LLC of Waleska, Georgia, has announced it is recalling certain packages of dog treats due to possible contamination with Salmonella bacteria.
The recall includes packages of chicken treats in various sizes and with the following lot dates:
- June 5, 2013
- October 8, 2013
According to the announcement on the company’s Facebook page:
“These two lots tested positive for Salmonella. We have had no reports of anyone or any pet becoming sick. These treats will not harm your dog, dogs digestive systems are designed for eating raw food. It is more dangerous to humans. As with all raw foods, after handling jerky products, we recommend washing your hands thoroughly. We are working with the GA Dept of Agriculture closely to recall the effected lots. We will have more details here as they become available.”
Georgia Department of Agriculture inspectors are checking retail stores and warehouses to be certain the recalled products have been removed from sale.
What to Do?
If you are in possession of one of the affected packages, officials recommend consumers discard the remaining contents.
