More than 1,000 Buster’s Natural Pet Supply Beef Trachea Pet Treats sold in two Colorado cities are being voluntarily recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
According to a recall notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Pet International of Miami is recalling 1,500 units of the product that were sold in retail stores in Conifer and Lakewood, Colo.
The recall was initiated after a routine sampling program of the product, obtained from Buster’s Natural Pet Supply in Conifer, tested positive for Salmonella. The sample was tested by the Colorado Dept. of Agriculture and analyzed by the FDA.
The product sampled had a Buster’s Natural Pet Supply label, but was manufactured by Pet International. Buster’s Natural Pet Supply has recalled the entire product from the two stores in which it is sold. Pet International is investigating what caused the problem.
Salmonella can affect animals as well as people who handle the contaminated treats. 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.
This recall is limited to 12-pack plastic pouch bags of 6-inch Buster’s Natural Pet Supply Beef Trachea Pet Treats.
