Recall: Barkworthies Chicken Vittles Dog Chews

December 29, 2014

Routine testing by the Colorado Department of Agriculture revealed the presence of Salmonella bacteria in a single lot of Barkworthies Chicken Vittles Dog Chews.  Barkworthies, of Richmond, VA, is now recalling select lots of the product because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Symptoms of Salmonella poisoning in humans range from nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever, to more serious problems like arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain and urinary tract infections.

In pets, look for lethargy, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting.  Some pets can be carriers of Salmonella without ever displaying signs of illness.

Chicken Vittles Dog Chews were distributed nationwide beginning May 6, 2014  Look for the following lot code found on the side of the plastic pouch:

Barkworthies Chicken Vittles
Lot Code 1254T1
16 oz. Plastic Pouch
UPC:  816807011510
