Kasel Recalls Dog Treats Over Salmonella Risk
Kasel Associated Industries voluntarily recalled all dog treat products manufactured at its Denver facility between April 20, 2012, and September 19, 2012, due to possible salmonella contamination.
Salmonella poisoning can sicken animals and is a risk to humans who come in contact with the tainted pet products and don’t wash their hands. Infected pets can also be carriers and can infect other animals or humans. Salmonella can result in serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms.
Infected pets may become lethargic and show symptoms such as diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, vomiting, decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. Contact your veterinarian if your pet has any of these signs.
The products listed in the Kasel recall are:
• Boots & Barkley, BIXBI
• Nature’s Deli
• Colorado Naturals
• Petco and
• Best Bully Stick items
The lot numbers for the recalled products can be found in the 1 Year Best By Date Table and 2 Year Best By Date Table on the FDA website. The recalled dog treats had been distributed nationwide through various retailers.
The company has not received any reports of illnesses associated with these products to date.
