Kasel Associated Industries recalled all lots of its Boots & Barkley 6-count, 5-inch American Beef Bully Sticks after several lots tested positive for salmonella, the Denver-based company reported today.

The product was distributed through Target stores in the United States from April through September 2012. The sticks come in a clear plastic bag marked with bar code number 647263899189.

Boots and Barkley 6-count, 5-inch American Beef Bully Sticks were recalled due to salmonella.
Kasel opted to recall the products after routine sampling by the Colorado Department of Agriculture revealed that four lots were contaminated with salmonella. Kasel ceased production and distribution of the product while the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the company investigate the source of the contamination.

Pets suffering from a salmonella infection may become lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets may have only a decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected by otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and may infect other animals or people.

Owners of pets that ate the recalled products and are displaying symptoms of salmonella poisoning should contact their veterinarian, the company said.

People infected with salmonella may experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Salmonella also can cause more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms.

Consumers who handled the recalled products and are exhibiting signs of salmonella infection should contact a health care provider.

The recalled product may be returned to the store for a refund.

Anyone with questions may contact Kasel at 800-218-4417 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. MDT, weekdays.
