One lot of Turkey Sprinkles Food Enhancer has been voluntarily recalled by the Boulder Dog Food Company because it may be contaminated with Salmonella.
Last month, the Colorado-based company voluntarily recalled one lot of its Chicken Sprinkles Food Enhancer for the same reason. In both cases, a routine sampling program by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found the products to test positive for Salmonella.
Salmonella can affect animals as well as people who handle the contaminated food. The symptoms for both people and animals include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. If you or your pet experiences these symptoms after handling or eating the recalled product, see a doctor or veterinarian.
According to a news release today from the FDA, the Turkey Sprinkles Food Enhancer recall includes seven bags that were distributed to retail customers in Colorado and Virginia. The Boulder Dog Food Company received one complaint from a consumer who had contact with the affected product.
The 3-ounce, clear poly bags have the following best by date, lot number and UPC code:
- Best by date: 05/18/16, 05/28/16 or 05/30/16
- Lot number: 743
- UPC code: 899883001224
The UPC code is located in the lower right corner of the product label on the front of the bag. The best by date and lot number are on a label on the center of the back of the bag.
If you purchased the recalled product, do not give it to your dog. Return it to the retailer where it was purchased or send it to the Boulder Dog Food Company.
