The Colorado Department of Agriculture has notified The Natural Dog Company, maker of a variety of dog chews, that their Tremenda Sticks Pet Chews are contaminated with Salmonella.
According to the official press release, here are the exact details of the affected treats:
The recalled 12″ Tremenda Sticks were distributed to retail stores in CA, CO, FL, IL, MO MT, NC, OH UT and WA.
The recalled product comes in a 12oz bag without a lot number or expiration date with UPC number: 851265004957. Products with new packaging, which includes both a lot number and expiration date but the same UPC are not affected by this recall.
Production of the product has been suspended while FDA and the company continue their investigation as to the source of the problem.
Consumers who have purchased 12oz packages of 12″ Tremenda Sticks should discontinue use of the product and may return the unused portion to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-888-424-4602 – Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm MST.
Humans, you’ll want to wash your hands, too, to avoid getting sick. As of yet, no illnesses have been reported in human or pup. Symptoms of Salmonella in pets include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever; humans may also experience abdominal cramping as a result.
This month alone, Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried raw dog food and The Carnivore Meat Company‘s frozen beef tripe treats were also recalled due to possible Listeria contamination. We certainly hope this is it for July!
Again, please call 1-888-424-4602, Monday-Friday 9am to 5pm MST with any questions or concerns.
