Possibly contaminated dog chews recalled
WASHINGTON, April 18, 2007 (UPI) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said T.W. Enterprises of Ferndale, Wash., recalled its nationally distributed brands of dog chews.
The FDA said the possibly salmonella-contaminated pet treats were distributed across the United States and Canada under the T.W. Enterprises and Aron Pet Food brand names.
Officials said people handling the treats can become infected with salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the chews or any surfaces exposed to the products.
Pets with salmonella infections might become lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting.
The recalled products were sold without batch codes or other identifying marks and under various product names, including A.B. chews, Healthy K9 beef jerky, beef heart, beef liver and veal chew dog treats; Bully Chews; Salmon Snackers; Shrimp Snackers; and American Bullie dog chews.
People who have the recalled pet chews are advised to dispose of them in a securely covered trash receptacle and to seek medical attention if they experience symptoms of salmonella infection.
