Pet Center, Inc., a Los Angeles-based pet-treat manufacturer, has issued a voluntary recall of specific lamb-based dog treats due to potential contamination with Salmonella.

 

The following products are included in the dog treat recall:

 

Lamb Crunchy’s Dog Treats (Made in the USA)

3 oz. bags

According to a press release issued by the FDA, the product was distributed in California, Wisconsin, Colorado, and Washington states to retailers including Gelson’s Market, General Pet, Nor-Sky Pet Supply and Independent Pet.

 

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 these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

 

There is a risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surface exposed to these products. Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.

 

Salmonella was detected by the State of Colorado, Department of Agriculture in a random sample of these dog treat products. No illnesses have been reported to date.

 

Customers who have purchased this product are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Pet Center, Inc. customer representatives will also be available to answer questions related to the dog treat recall at 1-800-390-0575 Monday-Friday between 7:30am through 4pm PST.
