Dog Treat Recall: Boots & Barkley Bully Sticks
Posted by Abby Rosenberg on September 25, 2012
Filed under PetMeds Spotlight

According to an FDA news release, Kasel Associated Industries of Denver, CO has issued a voluntary recall of its Boots & Barkley 6 Count 5-Inch American Beef Bully Sticks due to possible contamination with Salmonella. Pets may become ill from eating products contaminated with Salmonella, and humans are at risk for Salmonella poisoning from handling the contaminated pet treats.

According to the FDA:

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has any of these signs, please contact your veterinarian.

The product was distributed in Target stores from April through September 2012, and comes in a clear plastic bag containing 6 bully sticks marked with the bar code number 647263899189.  A routine sampling and analysis by the State of Colorado Dept. of Agriculture found that the following lot codes tested positive for Salmonella: BESTBY20APR2014DEN, BESTBY01JUN2014DEN, BESTBY23JUN2014DEN, and BESTBY23SEP2014DEN. However, Kasel Industries is recalling all lot numbers.

To date, no illnesses have been reported in humans or animals in connection to this product. If you have purchased packages of the affected bully sticks, you are urged to return the product to the retailer for a full refund. Questions may be directed to Kasel Associated Industries at 1-800-218-4417 Monday thru Friday from 7am to 5pm MDT.
