One lot of Chicken Sprinkles Food Enhancer has been voluntarily recalled by the Boulder Dog Food Company because it may be contaminated with Salmonella.
According to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration recall notice, a routine sampling of the product by the Colorado Dept. of Agriculture tested positive for Salmonella. One complaint has been received from a consumer who bought the affected product.
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.
The recall only applies to 10 3-ounce, clear poly bags of Chicken Sprinkles Food Enhancer with the following best by date, lot number and UPC code:
- Best by date: 05/04/16
- Lot number: 998
- UPC code: 899883001231
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 back of the bag.
The 10 recalled products were distributed to two retail stores in Colorado, one retail store in Washington and one customer in Maryland. The Boulder Dog Food Company has retrieved eight of them, and believes the remaining two bags have been used or destroyed.
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.
