If you feed Jones Natural Chews Woofers Dog Treats to your pet, you should know that the company is recalling 245 boxes of its product due to potential contamination with Salmonella.

Salmonella bacteria can sicken both humans and pets. Healthy people who become infected should watch for such symptoms as nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. In those with compromised immune systems, the illness could become more serious, so consult your medical professional, should you experience any of the above symptoms.
Dogs with Salmonella infections may exhibit similar symptoms, but some canines just carry the disease and could pass the bacteria to their humans. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water after handling any pet food and after playing with your dog.
