Nature’s Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats recalled due to Salmonella risk, distributed to dozens of Sam’s Club locations

Denver, CO company, Kasel Associated Industries announced it has voluntarily recalled select lots of Chicken Jerky Dog Treats after routine sampling by the FDA  revealed finished products contained the Salmonella bacteria

The recalled product, Nature’s Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats comes in a clear plastic bag with the Nature’s Deli logo containing 2.5 lbs chicken jerky marked with UPC bar code 647263800208. Kasel Industries is recalling lot number BEST BY 091913 DEN because this lot code tested positive through analysis by the FDA, according to a FDA Firm Press Release Tuesday.

The recalled Chicken Jerky Dog Treats were distributed to 57 Sam’s Club locations in the following states: CO,IA,ID,IL,KS,MO,MT,NE,OK,SD,UT and WY.

Salmonella is a pathogen to both humans and animals. There is a risk for humans handling the contaminated dog food if poor hand washing techniques are not performed or surfaces in contact with the dog food are not properly cleaned.

In humans, Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Pets, including dogs, with Salmonella can become lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. The clinical features of canine salmonellosis vary on strain, amount ingested and dog host factors.

Many dogs however are asymptomatic carriers of the bacteria and may shed Salmonella for up to 100 days after being infected. This can become a risk for family members and anyone with confirmed salmonellosis without a known risk of exposure, the family pet should be tested regardless of symptoms.

The FDA says no illnesses have been reported to date in animals or humans in connection with this problem.

Consumers who have purchased the 2.5 lbs packages of Chicken Jerky Dog Treats are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Kasel Associated Industries at             (800) 218-4417       Monday thru Friday from 7am to 5pm MDT.
