Jump Your Bones, a Florida-based pet treat company, has voluntarily recalled its Kangaroo Bites and Roo Bites brand treats because of potential Salmonella contamination.

 

The affected lots of Jump Your Bones Pet Treats were distributed to retail pet food stores nationwide and in boutique bags and online stores. Pet treat products affected by this recall can be identified with the following UPC codes:

 

63633010041 for 80g. / 2.82oz, including samples of .32 oz.

 

Jump Your Bones recalled the items because they had the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella due to a packaging issue in Australia during one shipment received in early 2012, which has now been resolved for all products produced in 2012 and 2013.

 

Jump Your Bones has since tested all products at their warehouse for Salmonella. The results from the FDA show no presence of Salmonella. Furthermore, no pet or consumer illnesses associated with this recall had been reported at the time of this press release.

 

Those at risk of being infected with Salmonella should monitor for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. Salmonella can also result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms.

 

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 a pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, or another pet or human has these symptoms, contact your veterinarian or health care provider.

 

If you have purchased pet treat products affected by this Jump Your Bones recall you are urged to stop feeding them to your pet and to return the product(s) to the place of purchase for a full refund.

 

For further information about the recall, call (888) 249-6755 from Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (EST).
