Bailey’s Choice Dog Treats Recalls Product for Salmonella

Bailey’s Choice Dog Treats of Georgia is recalling some packages of certain chicken jerky treats because it may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. The chicken treats are in various sizes and with these lot dates: June 5, 2013 and October 8, 2013. Those two lots tested positive for the bacteria.

Dog Food SafetyThere are no reports of human or pet illness related to this product. The announcement on the company’s Facebook page states: “These treats will not harm your dog, dog’s 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 do have to mention that chicken jerky treats imported from China have been making dogs and cats sick for years, and Salmonella was suspected as one of the causes of those illnesses. Pets can and do get sick from contaminated products. Symptoms of a Salmonella infection in a pet can include fever, lack of appetite, lethargy, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Animals can be infected with no signs of disease (asymptomatic). They can shed the bacteria, and that can make people sick.

If you have one of the recalled packages, discard them in a sealed container so animals can’t get at them. Bailey’s Choice Dog Treats LLC will refund money; visit their Facebook page for more information.
