Expanded Warning on Nature’s Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats
Posted by Abby Rosenberg on December 8, 2012
Filed under PetMeds Spotlight

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning to pet owners not to give your pet certain lots of Nature’s Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats due to a risk of Salmonella contamination. The affected treats are 3 lb. packages with the lot code of BESTBY061913DEN, and are manufactured and distributed by Kasel Associates Industries and sold in Costco stores in the Denver, CO area.  While at this time Kasel has declined to perform a voluntary recall, according to the press release, “Costco is working with FDA and has removed all of the affected products from its shelves. The company will also contact customers who may have purchased the product to provide additional instructions.”

According to the FDA:

Pets with Salmonella infections may become lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets may experience only a 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 any of the affected product or is experiencing any of these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately.

There have not been any reports of illnesses associated with these treats.  However, if you have these treats, you are asked to dispose of the product in a way that other animals or people cannot access them, such as in a secure garbage can.
