According to the FDA, this recall is the result of routine sampling conducted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development. The sample package of Pig Ear Dog Treats tested positive for Salmonella. Salmonella can affect animals eating the products, and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or surfaces exposed to these products.

==> The distribution of these products may be related to the potential Salmonella contamination noted during an ongoing FDA investigation of Salmonella illness across the United States in both humans and pets.

The FDA, together with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and several state health regulatory partners, is investigating a link between Pig Ear Dog Treats and human cases of Salmonellosis.

==> For information about Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning), please consult the “Illnesses” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm pet food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Pig Ear Treats, please do not feed them to your pet(s). Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund. Wash down all prep surfaces, serving implements and serving bowls with a bleach/water mixture; rinse well with lots of hot soapy water.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to handle Salmonellosis.
