SALMONELLA Found in Pet Treats
Article published Apr 4, 2007
Salmonella risk found in pet treats
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON -- A pet food company has announced a nationwide recall of dog, cat and ferret treats that could be contaminated with salmonella. The bacteria could infect both animals and people handling the food. The announcement is unrelated to the more extensive recall of melamine-tainted dog and cat food that led to kidney failure in pets around the country.
Eight in One Inc., a division of United Pet Group Inc., is recalling all packages of Dingo Chick'N Jerky, Dingo Kitty Chicken Jerky and Dingo Ferret Chicken Jerky.
Salmonella can cause serious infections in pets and children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. In pets, salmonella can cause diarrhea, fevers, vomiting, loss of appetite, lethargy and abdominal pain. Animals that do not get sick can infect other pets or humans. The bacteria could also infect people handling the pet treats.
Eight in One has received a report of a dog infected by salmonella, which led to further testing of this product. Some, but not all, of the samples tested were contaminated. The treats were sold at Target, PetSmart and other stores. The company asks consumers to throw away unused portions of the jerky treats. To obtain a refund, call (888) 232-9889.

THAT'S IT! I'VE HAD IT!!! NO more treats for my dogs until all this CRAP is over with! From now on they will only get Cottage Cheese, boiled pieces of Chicken, Apples, etc. as treats and that's IT!
We have so many treats and just recently I went out and FINALLY bought a treat jar - so I have put alot of their treats in the treat jar and just thrown the bags away. Now I don't have them here to look at and I don't even remember all of the brands of them and I certainly don't know who their distributors are - so I can't even go to the internet for help because I have no idea what I'm looking for. So anyway, that's it! I am just going to throw them ALL away! I'm not risking anything with my beloved babies!
Mommy Loves Stedman and Tatum!
They have us wrapped around their little paws!
