Priority Total Pet Care Bullstrips were recalled due to possible salmonella contamination.

Dog treat manufacturer Carolina Prime Pet Inc. voluntarily recalled two lots of Priority Total Pet Care All Natural Bullstrips in five-count packages because of possible salmonella contamination.

A test performed by the Colorado Department of Agriculture detected salmonella in one lot, the Lenoir, N.C., manufacturer reported Tuesday.
