Pet Treat Recall/Warning
I am using this as a way to test our new email program. Below is an article from one of our services regarding a pet food treat recall. I hope no one's pets have eaten them or gotten ill from them. There is an 800 number to call if you have concerns. Hope everyone is enjoying summer so far.
Los Angeles treat manufacturer Pet Center Inc. has voluntarily recalled a limited number of 3-ounce bags of Lamb Crunchys because of potential salmonella contamination.
The dog treats were distributed in California, Colorado, Washington state and Wisconsin through the Gelson’s Market chain and three wholesalers: General Pet Supply, Nor-Sky Pet Supply Distributors and Independent Pet Supply.
The Colorado Department of Agriculture detected salmonella in a random sample, the manufacturer reported.
No pet or human illnesses have been linked to Lamb Crunchys, which are made from dehydrated lamb lungs. Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in pets include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may exhibit similar symptoms.
The U.S.-made treats come in 3-ounce, 8-ounce and 1-pound bags, but only the smallest size is affected. The recalled bags show the UPC number 727348200038 and a date code of 122015.
Any of the recalled treats may be returned to the place of purchase for a refund. The company is fielding questions at 800-390-0575 from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific time Monday through Friday
