The affected dog treats were manufactured in one of the company’s U.S. plants, the Food and Drug Administration reported. No pet or consumer illnesses have been linked to the recalled biscuits.
Salmonella can affect animals that eat contaminated products. People who handle the products or have contact with a pet carrying the infection are at risk as well.
Neither the FDA nor Nature’s Recipe revealed how the problem originated or which plant was involved.
The two recalled lots were distributed nationally, primarily through pet specialty retailers, the FDA stated. The products were sold in 19-ounce stand-up resealable pouches and marked with:
- Lot code 2199TP, UPC code 30521 51549, best-by date of 10-11-13.
- Lot code 2200TP, UPC code 30521 51549, best-by date of 10-12-13.
Consumers who bought any of the recalled products were advised to stop feeding the treats and discard them.
