Petsmart recalled its Dentley’s brand of Bulk Cattle Hooves and Choobles 10-Pack Beef Hooves on Nov. 4 after learning from Pet Carousel that the products may be contaminated with salmonella.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration later warned against using all beef hoof and pig ear pet treats manufactured by Pet Carousel. The affected pig ear products were packaged under the brand names Doggie Delight and Pet Carousel. The affected beef hooves were packaged under the brand names Choo Hooves, Dentley’s, Doggie Delight and Pet Carousel.
In its alert, the FDA said a routine testing of Pet Carousel’s pigs ears in September turned up a positive reading for salmonella. After conducting an investigation, the FDA reported finding salmonella present in the company’s pig ears, beef hooves and manufacturing environment.
According to the FDA, consumers who handle dry pet food can become infected with salmonella, especially if they fail to wash their hands after handling the treats or touching surfaces that have been exposed to the food.
Pets with salmonella can become lethargic, lose their appetite, run a fever, suffer abdominal pain, and have diarrhea, fever and vomiting.
