Routine product testing showed that certain packages of the company’s Cow-Boom! strips contained Salmonella.
From the FDA’s website:
“This voluntary recall is limited to cow-boom! strips – beef gullet that were packaged into 2.0 oz bags, with lot numbers ending in 4T1 or 5T1, a best-by-year of 2016 or 2017 and UPC number 8 18336 01134 4.
The Company has notified its distributors and retailers and is taking this voluntary action as a precautionary measure. No other products of the company are affected by this recall.
Routine sampling by an inspector for the Colorado Department of Agriculture revealed the presence of Salmonella, which prompted this voluntary recall. This product is supplied by a U.S. supplier.
Consumers should look at the lot numbers and best-by-dates printed on the bag to determine if it is subject to this recall. People who have purchased these products are instructed to dispose of the product or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.”
Salmonella can affect humans handling the product as well as pets. No cases of the illness as a result of this recall have been reported, thank dog, but it’s better to be safe than sorry!
