It's time to check your pantries because a brand new recall has been issued for dog treats. An article published on Petproductnews.com on Monday states that a recall has been issued for Lamb Crunchy’s dog treats.
Pet Product News reports that the makers of Lamb Crunchy’s dog treats have voluntarily issued a recall for their treats with the bar code number of 727348200038 and date code of 122015 to retailers in California, Wisconsin, Colorado, and Washington. The recall was reportedly issued after a random sample of the treats was tested in Colorado, and was found to be contaminated with salmonella.
The Lamb Crunchy’s dog treats were reportedly distributed to Gelson’s Market in California, General Pet in Wisconsin, Nor-Sky Pet Supply in Colorado, and Independent Pet in Washington from the Los Angeles-area manufacturing facility. If you purchased these treats for your pet you should return them to the store for a full refund.
If you've already fed the Lamb Crunchy’s dog treats to your dog it's important to keep an eye out for signs your dog has been infected with salmonella. PetMD.com reports that the signs and symptoms of salmonella in dogs include fever, lethargy, diarrhea, vomiting, mucus in stool, abnormally fast heart rate, swollen lymph nodes, and more. If you suspect your dog may have ingested contaminated treats you should seek medical treatment right away.
There is one surefire way to ensure the treats you are feeding your dog are safe, and that's by making them yourself. That may sound like a lot of extra work, but a free peanut butter and bacon recipe from Sallysbakingaddiction.com makes it pretty simple.
