Recall: Pig Ears Pet Treats

March 21, 2017

EuroCan Manufacturing has voluntarily recalled one lot of its Barnsdale Farms, Houndstooth, and Mac’s Choice Pig Ears because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. The recalled products were distributed throughout the United States and Canada.

Recall of Pet Treats

The pig ears were individually shrink-wrapped in 6-pack, 12-pack, and 25-pack bags under the brand names, Barnsdale Farms, Barnsdale Farms Select, Houndstooth and Mac’s Choice. The Lot # is 84.

No illnesses have been reported.  However, should you experience the following symptoms, contact your medical professional at once:

Nausea
Vomiting
Diarrhea
Bloody Diarrhea
Abdominal Cramping
Fever

In more serious cases such conditions as endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract infections could occur but these are rare and usually only affect those with underlying conditions that affect their immune systems.

Salmonella can affect animals, as well as the humans who handle them or their belongings. Some pets may exhibit the above symptoms but many will be carriers of the bacteria with no symptoms. If your pet has eaten any of the affected products, contact your veterinarian at once for further advice.

Always wash your hands thoroughly after handling pet bowls or toys or any pet-related products.

Routine testing by the company revealed the presence of Salmonella in these products. They have withheld distribution of products while they and the FDA investigate to find the source of contamination.

If you have purchased any of the recalled products, return them to your place of purchase for a refund. With further questions, you may call the company at 888-290-7606, Monday – Friday, 9-5 EST.
