Petfood company Nature's Recipe is recalling select Oven Baked Biscuits with Real Chicken because the dog treats may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The dog treats were manufactured at the company's plant in Topeka, Kansas, USA, and distributed throughout the US. The recalled treats were sold in 19-ounce stand-up, resealable pouches. Recalled treats are marked with the lot codes 2199TP or 2200TP and UPC code 30521 51549. Packages are stamped with a "Best If Used By Date" of "10 11 13" and "10 12 13."
Nature's Recipe says no pet or human illnesses have been reported, but suggest that pet owners monitor themselves and their dogs for signs of Salmonella. Those who have purchased the recalled treats are advised to discard them immediately. Consumers with questions can contact the company 24 hours per day by calling +1.800.237.3856 or on the company's website.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
