Food Safety Alert: Target Recalls Dog Treats Over Salmonella

WASHINGTONDenver-based Kasel Associated Industries is recalling Boots & Barkley Roasted American Pig Ears and Boots & Barkley American Variety Pack Dog Treats from Target stores nationwide because the products may be contaminated with Salmonella.

The recall involves 12-count packages of Roasted Pig Ears with UPC bar code 647263899158,  and 32-ounce Variety Pack Dog Treats with UPC bar code 490830400086 distributed to Target retailers nationwide in August 2012.

The recall was the result of a routine sampling by the Colorado Department of Agriculture that revealed finished products contained the Salmonella bacteria. The company has ceased distribution of any lots that have possible contamination of the bacteria. Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products.

On Oct. 15, Natures Recipe brand announced a nationwide recall of Natures Recipe® Oven Baked Biscuits with Real Chicken dog treats because they may be contaminated with Salmonella. Earlier this year, Salmonella-tainted dry dog food was the source of a multistate outbreak that sickened 14 people in nine states with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Infantis. Five people, including an infant, were hospitalized.
