Dog Treat Recall – Kasel Recalls Numerous Brands

Please read carefully, there are numerous brands that have been recalled voluntarily, due to salmonella:

February 20, 2013 – According to an updated FDA news bulletin, Kasel Associated Industries of Denver, CO is voluntarily recalling all products manufactured at its Denver, Colorado facility from April 20, 2012 through September 20, 2012 due to possible contamination with Salmonella bacteria.

Salmonella can sicken animals that eat these products. And humans are at risk for Salmonella poisoning from handling contaminated pet products — especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the pet products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Bloody diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramping

Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms.

Consumers exhibiting these symptoms after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting.

Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans.

If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has any of these signs, please contact your veterinarian.
