Kasel Associated Industries is recalling Boots & Barkley 5-inch American Beef Bully Sticks because the pet treats may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The recalled American Beef Bully Sticks were distributed through Target retail stores in the US from April through September. The recall applies to all lot numbers of the treats, marked with barcode 647263899189, which are sold in a six-count, clear plastic bag.
The company is recalling all lot numbers of the product because a sampling by the State of Colorado Department of Agriculture found the following lot numbers tested positive for Salmonella: BESTBY20APR2014DEN, BESTBY01JUN2014DEN, BESTBY23JUN2014DEN and BESTBY23SEP2014DEN.
No illnesses have been reported to date in animals or humans in connection with this problem. Symptoms of illness from Salmonella in humans include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever, as well as arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms.
Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, vomiting, though some pets may only have decreased appetite, abdominal pain.
Consumers may return the product to the place of purchase for a refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at +1.800.218.4417, Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. MDT.
