November 27, 2015

On November 25, 2015, the Food & Drug Administration issued a voluntary recall for Blue Buffalo® Cub-Size Wilderness Wild Chews Bones.  They have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria.

Animals with Salmonella may exhibit such symptoms as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, fever and muscle aches.  Many animals show no symptoms of the bacteria at all but are carriers of Salmonella.

Infected humans display similar symptoms but in serious cases, they rarely may show signs of endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, urinary tract symptoms, or eye irritation.
