Nature’s Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats, manufactured by Kasel Associated Industries of Denver, Colorado, were recalled after the Food & Drug Administration found Salmonella bacteria during a routine inspection. The company recalled the product as soon as they received the news.
This product recall has nothing to do with the Chinese-made jerky treat problems.
The FDA warns pet owners to always wash their hands with soap and warm water after handling pet food and treats or having contact with any surface exposed to said treats. This includes the pets dishes and toys. Be sure to wash your pets toys periodically.
Watch for symptoms of Salmonella infection in your pets. Infected dogs and cats may show such signs as diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and lethargy. If you pet has consumed the recalled product, be sure to contact your veterinarian to have the animal tested.
