Another pet product company is recalling its pig ear treats for dogs after a supplier, Keys Manufacturing Co. Inc., detected salmonella in one batch.
Blackman Industries Inc. of Kansas City is recalling its PrimeTime brand two-count and five-count premium pig ears and KC Beefhide brand 20-count premium pig ears because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.
The PrimeTime products come in clear plastic packages with yellow printed headers and are marked with the UPC codes 7-48976-18316-6 (two-count), 7-48976-09040-2 (five-count) and 7-48976-19040-9 (five-count).
The KC Beefhide product is packaged in a red mesh nylon bag with a green and white header and the UPC code 7-48976-09065-5.
These products were distributed in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and South Dakota from Jan. 4 to April 29 and sold in many of these grocery stores: Price Chopper, Hy-Vee, Hen House Market, Bag N Save, Dahl’s, Baldwin City Market, SunFresh, Apple Market, Brookside Market, Franklin Food Store, No Frills, Alps, Big V, Country Mart, Thriftway, County Fair, Super Saver and Russ’s and Feldman’s Farm and Home.
The pig ear supplier, Keys Manufacturing, issued a recall this month after a dog in Missouri was reported sick.
Pets with salmonella infections may become lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets may show only a decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans.
Pet owners should contact their veterinarian immediately if a pet consumed the recalled treats or is experiencing any of the above symptoms.
Consumers who bought any of the recalled PrimeTime or KC Beefhide products are urged to return them to the store for a full refund.
Consumers with questions may contact the company at 913-342-5010.
