By Victoria Heuer    October 12, 2015 / (0) comments

Salix Animal Health, a Florida based dog treat manufacturer, has announced a voluntary recall of their "Good 'n' Fun - Beefhide Chicken Sticks" due to a potential for contamination with Salmonella bacteria.


Only one lot of the rawhide treat was identified as being at risk. The recalled product is packaged in a 2.8 ounce bag, with lot #AO15010 stamped on the back side of the bag. The UPC code is 0 91093 82247 1, and the expiration date is 03/2018.


Good 'n' Fun – Beefhide Chicken Sticks were distributed nationwide by Salix Animal Health to Dollar General and Dollar Tree retail stores.


There have not been any reports of illnesses related to Good 'n' Fun - Beefhide Chicken Sticks. According to the press release from Salix Animal Health, “the potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the Georgia Department of Agriculture revealed the presence of Salmonella in one 2.8 ounce package of "Good 'n' Fun - Beefhide Chicken Sticks" labeled with the recalled code.”


If you or your pet had contact with the recalled product, monitor your pets, yourself, and family members for symptoms that may develop. Common symptoms associated with Salmonella poisoning include diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, nauseavomiting, or abdominal pain. If you, your pet, or a family member is experiencing these symptoms, it is advisable to contact a medical professional immediately.
