Expanded Recall of Bailey’s Choice Dog Treats

November 7, 2013

Last week, I reported that Bailey’s Choice Treats had voluntarily recalled certain lots of their dog treats.  Today, the Food & Drug Administration announced that the recall has been expanded.

If you buy Bailey’s Choice Dog Treats, please pay attention to the following products on recall.  They have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella:

100% Chicken Treat, lot # “June 2, 2013”
100% Chicken Treat, lot # “June 3, 2013”
100% Chicken Breast Treat, lot # June 4, 2013”
100% Chicken Treat, lot # “June 15, 2013”
100% Chicken Treat, lot # “July 8, 2013”
100% Chicken Treat, lot # “July 11, 2013”
100% Teriyaki Chicken Treatts, lot # 132881

The Georgia Department of Agriculture will continue to inspect retail stores and warehouses to make sure the recalled products have been removed from sale, but consumers much check their own shelves so their pets’ health is not compromised.

Should you or your pet show signs of diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, fever, vomiting, dehydration or rapid heart rate, seek medical help at once.  Salmonella infection is zoonotic, which means it can transmit to humans.

Always wash your hands with soap and very warm water after handling pet food, treats, toys, or dishes.  Some dogs can carry the bacteria without becoming ill or showing signs of infection.

If you have purchased any of the recalled products, contact the company at 770-881-0526.
