Pet Supplies Plus Recalls Pig Ears For Possible Salmonella

Pet Supplies Plus is recalling bulk pig ears in the wake of a Salmonella outbreak that has sickened at least 45 people in 13 states. But none of these cases are confirmed to be linked to pig ears from Pet Supplies Plus, according to the recall notice.

These bulk pig ears were distributed to Pet Supplies stores in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and West Virginia. Bulk pig ears were stoked in open bins. Prepacked branded pig ears are not included in this recall.

Test by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Develop revealed that “aging bulk pig ear product” in one of our stores tested positive for Salmonella. The company has pulled this product from all stores and have stopped shipping them while they investigate this problem.

If you purchased this product, do not give them to your pet. Throw them away in a sealed container so other animals can’t get at it. You can also take it back to the place of purchase for a refund.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include a fever, nausea, vomiting, chills, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea that may be bloody. People usually start feeling sick 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the pathogen. If you have this product in your home and you have been sick with these symptoms, see your doctor.
