Chef Toby Pig Ears Recalled For Possible Salmonella

Dog Goods USA is recalling Chef Toby Pig Ears Treats for possible Salmonella contamination. Although there is a multistate Salmonella outbreak linked to pig ear dog treats, no illnesses have been linked to this specific brand. The company is investigating this problem and is conducting an internal investigation to determine how this issue may have occurred.

Chef Toby Pig Ears Recalled For Possible Salmonella

The recalled product is Chef Toby Pig Ears, with product lot codes of: 428590, 278989, 087148, 224208, 1168723, 428590, 222999, 074599, 1124053, 226884, 578867, 224897, 1234750, 444525, 1106709, 215812, 230273, 224970, 585246, 327901, 052248, 210393, 217664, 331199, 225399, 867680, 050273, 881224, 424223, 225979, 431724, 226340, 880207, and 334498.  These are non-irradiated bulk and packaged pig ears.

The company was contacted by the FDA during its investigation between the link between pig ear pet treats and the Salmonella outbreak. The FDA sampled pig ears manufactured by the company’s supplier in Brazil, and one sample did test positive for Salmonella.

Dog Goods purchased the pig ears from a single supplier in Brazil from September 2018 through August 2019. The product is distributed nationwide in retail stores.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will only have a decreased appetite and fever. Some pets can appear perfectly healthy but be carriers of the pathogen.

Human symptoms of Salmonella poisoning include fever, nausea, vomiting, stomach and abdominal pain and cramps, and diarrhea that may be bloody. If you or your pet have been ill with these symptoms, see your doctor or veterinarian.

If you purchased the above product with one of those lot codes, don’t give it to your pet. Throw it away in a sealed container so other animals can’t get at it, or take it back to the place of purchase for a full refund.
