Georgia pet treats recalled for possible Salmonella contamination

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

A batch of dog treats made in Georgia has been recalled for possible Salmonella contamination.

Bailey's Choice Dog Treats of Waleska, GA, is recalling packages of:

  • Chicken treats in various sizes marked with lot number #132881 and expiration date Feb. 2014
  • Five-ounce bags of chicken jerky with a lot number of "Jun 5 2013."

The Georgia Department of Agriculture said in a news release that these products should be discarded.
 
Inspectors are checking retail stores and warehouses to make sure the recalled products have been removed from sale.
 
In an email to Bailey's Choice distributors, company owner Roger Thomas said, "We are working hard to find the problem and will correct it immediately to ensure safe products for both human and our four legged friends."
 
Dogs infected by Salmonella may experience fever, lethargy, diarrhea or mucus in stool, vomiting, dehydration, weight loss or rapid heart rate. Pets experiencing these symptoms should be taken to a veterinarian immediately.

This bacterial disease is zoonotic, meaning it can be transmitted to humans.
 
To date, no illnesses have been reported.
 
Bailey's Choice Dog Treats LLC will provide customers with a full refund, and can be contacted:
