TDBBS Pig Ears Are Voluntarily Recalled For Possible Salmonella

TDBBS is voluntarily recalling two pig ear pet treat products that were sold through Amazon.com for possible Salmonella contamination. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall of TDBBS pig ears.

TDBBS Pig Ears Are Voluntarily Recalled For Possible Salmonella

The two pig ear pet treat products are USA Thick Pig Ear 8 Pack and USA Thick Pig Ear 20 Pack. This recall is the result of routine sampling conducted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development. The sample bag tested positive for Salmonella, which triggered the recall.

Salmonella and other pathogenic bacteria can affect pets who eat them and human beings who handle the products and their pets. The risk to humans is if they don’t thoroughly wash their hands after touching them or playing with or petting their pets. The animals can excrete the bacteria, and it can then get on their coats, or on carpeting or furniture in the house.

The TDBBS pig ears were shipped to customers between April 22, 2019 and August 13, 2019. The USA Thick Pig Ear 8 Pack has the UPC number X001768PNB, and best by date/lot code pairs 4/22/2021/ 1129T1 and 6/06/2021 / 1549T1. The LLC USA Thick Pig Ear 20 Pack has the UPC number X000RBC5VF and best by date/lot code pairs of 4/22/2021 / 1129T1; 5/13/2021 / 1339T1; and 8/05/2021 / 2179T1. All UPC numbers, best by dates, and lot codes are on the back of the package.

Animals with Salmonella infections vary in the symptoms they exhibit. They can be lethargic and have diarrhea that may be bloody, fever, and vomiting; may have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain; or may have no symptoms at all.

Humans with Salmonella infections usually exhibit fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea that may be bloody. Any animal or person who has been sick after contact with these treats should see a doctor.

If you purchased either of these products, do not give them to your pets. Throw them away in a sealed container in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.
