Pig Ear Dog Treats Recalled

by Amanda on May 4, 2011

Keys Manufacturing Co. Inc. of Paris, Illinois is recalling their Pig Ears for Pet Treats chews due to possible salmonella contamination.

The pet treats were distributed in Virginia as well as Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

The product was distributed in 100 count cases packed in cardboard boxes shipped between Sept. 27-Oct. 6, 2010; Nov. 1-Nov. 29, 2010; and Jan. 3-Jan. 25, 2011.

The treats have been linked to illness in at least one dog in Missouri. Salmonella from pet treats can affect not only animals but people as well that could become sick after handling the contaminated treats. Symptoms to watch out for include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Pets with salmonella may be lethargic, have decreased appetite and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea fever and vomiting.

If you’ve purchased these treats, you can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. You can also contact the company at 1-217-465-4001 with any questions.
