Dog Treats Recall – Kasel EXPANDS To Include More Products

This is an updated table of the products that are being voluntarily recalled for salmonella.  I am posting the whole article so that you may be able to see if any products you feed your dog are on it:

February 21, 2013 – The Food and Drug Administration has today announced that Kasel Associated Industries is expanding its recent recall to include other products and retail sales sources.

Caution SignKasel has already issued previous recall notices for specific products manufactured between April 20 and September 19, 2012 due to potential contamination with Salmonella bacteria.

According to the FDA…

The move comes after the Colorado Department of Agriculture tested a retail sample of a Kasel pet treat product and found it to be positive for Salmonella

In a follow-up inspection at the firm, the FDA found that all of the finished pet treat product samples and 48 out of 87 environmental samples collected tested positive for Salmonella.

More than ten different species of Salmonella were found in both the firm’s products and manufacturing facility, indicating multiple sources of contamination.

While there are no reports of human illness, FDA has received a small number of complaints of illness in dogs who were exposed to the treats.

Because of the multiple positive tests for Salmonella as well as the production practices and conditions observed at the facility during the inspection, the FDA has concluded…

“…there is a reasonable probability that pet treat products manufactured in the facility from April 20, 2012 through September 19, 2012 are contaminated with Salmonella.”

Where Were the Products Sold?

The Kasel-manufactured products are sold at various retailers including…

  • Target
  • Petco
  • Sam’s Club
  • Costco
  • Menards

Most of the products have a two-year shelf life.

All of the products were made in the U.S. This action is not related to FDA’s ongoing investigation of jerky pet treats made in China.

What to Do?

Both people and animals can contract Salmonellosis from handling or eating contaminated products.

People handling dry pet treats should thoroughly wash their hands after having contact with the treats as well as any surfaces exposed to these products.

Consumers who have any of these products, or who are unsure of the manufacturing date of their pet treats, should dispose of them in ways that people and animals, including wild animals, cannot access them, such as placing them in a securely lidded garbage can.

You can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.
