Salmonella Fear Spurs Firm To Recall Dog Treats


UPDATED: Tuesday October 16, 2012 11:07 AM

A pet food company is voluntarily recalling dog treats that could be contaminated with salmonella.

Nature's Recipe announced Saturday the recall of a limited supply of its "Nature's Recipe Oven Baked Biscuits with Real Chicken," which were manufactured at its plant in Topeka, Kan., and distributed nationally — primarily through pet specialty retailers.

The company says the product has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella, which can affect animals eating the products and pose a risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products.

Nature's Recipe officials say no pet or human illnesses have been reported.

The company says the recall is precautionary, and advises consumers who bought the recalled treats to discard them immediately.
