The Cranbury, New Jersey-based company did not say now may cases were affected or where the products were sold. It said no illnesses, injuries or complaints had been reported.

It said the problem was discovered by the company’s own inspection team and was caused by a finished ingredient that came from a U.S.-based supplier.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, salmonella can affect animals eating the products, and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after touching the products or any surfaces exposed to the products.

The company says consumers may return any bag of affected treats to the retailer where the product was originally purchased. For more information, visit www.LovingPetsProducts.com or call 866-599-PETS (7387).
