Nature’s Recipe Recalls Two Lots Of Dog Biscuits



Published:

Salmonella concerns prompted Nature's Recipe to recall two lots of dog biscuits.

Nature’s Recipe, a brand of San Francisco-based Del Monte Foods, voluntarily recalled a limited number of Oven Baked Biscuits with Real Chicken on Saturday because of possible salmonella contamination.

The two recalled lots were distributed nationally, primarily through pet specialty retailers, the Food and Drug Administration stated. The products were sold in 19-ounce stand-up resealable pouches and marked with:

• Lot code 2199TP, UPC code 30521 51549, best-by date of 10-11-13.
• Lot code 2200TP, UPC code 30521 51549, best-by date of 10-12-13.

Salmonella can affect animals that eat contaminated products. People who handle the products or have contact with a pet carrying the infection are at risk as well. No pet or consumer illnesses have been linked to the recalled biscuits.

The affected dog treats were manufactured in one of the company’s U.S. plants, the FDA reported. Neither the FDA nor Nature’s Recipe revealed how the problem originated or which plant was involved.

Consumers who bought any of the recalled products are advised to stop feeding the treats and discard them.
