Salmonella recall of dog treats strikes again.

Share story

A well-known dog-treat company is the latest to face a huge product recall for potential salmonella contamination.

Redbarn Pet Products announced this week that it has expanded its Feb. 9 recall of bully sticks, a kind of dog chew, distributed in pet specialty and grocery retail stores nationwide because they may be contaminated with salmonella.

The 24 products are Redbarn, Chewy Louie, Dentley’s and Good Lovin’ brands and were made with raw material from a single supplier, the company said. They were distributed from March 2017 through February 2018.

The Long Beach, California-based company said no illnesses, injuries or complaints have been reported to date. However, this recall comes as other dog-food and treat companies have faced massive recalls in the past month over potential contamination of salmonella, listeria and pentobarbital, a euthanasia drug.

Salmonella can affect animals eating the products, and there is a risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to them, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The initial Redbarn recall was issued after a sample tested by the Colorado Department of Agriculture was found to be tainted with salmonella. The FDA later tested a different lot from the same supplier and found that it also was contaminated, Red Barn said.
