The FDA is warning consumers not to feed their pets Pig Ears and Beef Hooves pet treats manufactured by Pet Carousel due to a possible Salmonella contamination.
The tainted pet products were distributed nationwide in bulk and retail packaging for sale in pet food and retail stores.
To this date there have been no reports of illness associated with the recalled pet treats, but the agency is advising consumers to not handle or feed these treats to their pets.
The recalled pig ear treats were packaged under the brand names Doggie Delight and Pet Carousel. And the recalled beef hooves treats were sold under the brand names Choo Hooves, Dentley’s, Doggie Delight, and Pet Carousel. All sizes and all lots of these products made by Pet Carousel are included in this alert.
Salmonella is harmful to humans and animals. The products should be disposed of in a safe manner by securing them in a trash bag.
The single most important measure to avoiding contamination is washing hands with hot soapy water for 20 seconds immediately after contact with dry pet foods, treats and supplements and after handling pets.
If your pet has consumed any of the recalled pet products or is experiencing any of symptoms of illness, you should contact your veterinarian immediately.
