Salmonella can affect animals eating this product and the people that handle the pig ears. In addition, dogs can carry Salmonella bacteria and shed it in their feces. Any surface in the home can be contaminated if the feces stays in contact with the dog. Illnesses are then possible when people pet their dogs and don’t wash their hands afterwards, or have contact with contaminated areas of the home.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and experience bloody diarrhea, fever, or vomiting. Some pets will only have mild symptoms such as decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. And others may not show any symptoms at all.

These recalled products were shipped to nationwide distributors and retail stores from May 1, 2019 to July 3, 2019. The recalled product comes in an 8 pack branded pouch. The pouch UPC numbers are 742174 995163 and  742174994166. The pigs ears may also be individually shrink wrapped with UPC numbers 0385384810 and 742174P35107. The UPC numbers are on the front label.
