Lennox Expands Recall of Pig Ear Dog Treats For Salmonella

Lennox INtl Inc, located in Edison, New Jersey, is expanding its voluntary recall of its Natural pig ear dog treats for possible Salmonella contamination. The press release states, “To date, Lennox is aware of cases of human illness related to an ongoing Salmonella outbreak in which several people identified Lennox pig eat treats as the brand they purchased. Individually shrink-wrapped product tested by FDA tested positive for Salmonella. Lennox’s pig ears are also sold bulk unwrapped.”

These recalled pig ear dog treats were shipped to nationwide distributors and/or retail stores from November 1, 2018 to July 3, 2019. The recalled product comes in an 8-pack branded pouch with UPC numbers 742174 995163 and  742174994166. The treats are also sold individually shrink wrapped with UPC numbers 0385384810 and 742174P35107. All UPC numbers are on the front label of the package. Individually shrink-wrapped packages may be labeled with “Lennox” or without any brand information.

Pets can contact Salmonella infections and pass the illness on to people. Symptoms of this infection in dogs can include lethargy, diarrhea that may be bloody, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will only have decreased appetite, abdominal pain and fever. And still other pets may have no symptoms at all, but can infect other pets and people.

People can get sick by touching contaminated products and then eating without washing their hands. Pets can shed the pathogen in the feces, which can then contaminate the pet’s coat and the environment.

Symptoms of salmonellosis in people include vomiting, fever, abdominal pain, nausea, chills, and diarrhea that may be bloody. Symptoms usually start 12 to 72 hours after exposure. Long term complications of this infection can include reactive arthritis and high blood pressure.

If you purchased any of these products, do not give them to your pet. Throw them away in a sealed package inside a secure garbage can, or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.
