Kasel Associated Industries Recalls Boots & Barley Dog Treats

By Vladimir Negron    September 26, 2012 at 04:57PM / (0) comments

Kasel Associated Industries, a Denver-based company, has voluntarily recalled its Boots & Barley 6-count 5-inch American Beef Bully Sticks due to possible Salmonella contamination.

The dog treats, which were distributed nationwide through Target retail stores from April through September 2012, come in a clear plastic bag. Each bag affected by the recall contains 6 bully sticks and are marked with the bar code number 647263899189.

Although no reported illnesses have been associated with the dog treats, Kasel Industries initiated the recall after the following lot codes tested positive for Salmonella through analysis by the State of Colorado Department of Agriculture: BESTBY20APR2014DEN, BESTBY01JUN2014DEN, BESTBY23JUN2014DEN, and BESTBY23SEP2014DEN.

Symptoms of Salmonella infection in both humans and animals include abdominal pain, diarrhea, loss of appetite, lethargy and fever. More severe symptoms can include bloody diarrhea, vomiting, headaches, muscle pain, eye pain, arthritis and arterial infection. Human infection acquired from animal food products is typically the result of not washing the hands appropriately after handling the food (i.e., after feeding the pet).
 
In addition, the infection can be spread to other humans and animals through contact with the infected individual. If you or your pet have been in contact with the recalled product and are exhibiting any of the above symptoms, you should contact your human and/or veterinary health provider immediately.

Pet owners who have purchased the 6-count 5-inch packages of Boots & Barkley American Beef Bully Sticks are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. You may also contact Kasel Associated Industries with questions at (800) 218-4417 Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. MDT.
