For the second time in eight days, Kasel Associated Industries recalled a dog treat because of possible salmonella contamination.
The Denver-based company Tuesday urged pet owners to return 2.5-pound packages of Nature’s Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats purchased at 57 Sam’s Club stores. The product, marked with the bar code 647263800208 and a best-buy date of 091913 DEN, was distributed in Colorado, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming.
The Food and Drug Administration detected salmonella during a test of the lot, the company stated.
No animal or human illnesses were reported in connection with the product, Kasel added.
Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in pets include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may show similar symptoms.
More information is available by calling Kasel at 800-218-4417 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday.
The recall followed one announced Sept. 24, 2012, involving 6-count, 5-inch Boots & Barkley American Beef Bully Sticks. Some of the sticks, distributed at Target stores from April through September under the bar code 647263899189, tested positive for salmonella.
