Some varieties of Nutrisca dry dog food and J.J. Fudd wet dog food have been recalled as of February 2015. Big Bark, Pet International and Jump Your Bones dog treats are also involved in recalls.
Tuffy’s Pet Foods, the manufacturer of Nutrisca, has issued a voluntarily recall on certain lots of its Chicken and Chick Pea dry dog food because of potential salmonella contamination. Package codes beginning with 4G29P, 4G31P, 4H01P, 4H04P, 4H05P and 4H06P, with best by dates of July 28, 30, 31, and Aug. 3 through Aug. 5 are affected.
Buster’s Natural Pet Supply Beef Trachea Treat with package code 8501450 was distributed to retail stores in Conifer and Lakewood, Colorado. The product has also been recalled due to salmonella concerns. The package involved in the recall is the 6-inch beef trachea in a 12-pack plastic pouch. The recall is the result of a routine sample performed by the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
A listeria and salmonella concern has prompted J.J. Fudds to expand a previous recall to include all varieties of their Chicken Tender Chunks, Beef Tender Chunks and Duckling Tender Chunks Pet Food. The products were distributed in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Pets infected with salmonella may become lethargic and develop diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Salmonella can also be transmitted to humans after handling a contaminated product. Listeria can also cause miscarriage in pregnant women.
