Dog chew recall, possible salmonella

Author: CNN

FORT MYERS, Fla. (WINK) – A new pet recall means dog owners will want to check the treat drawer. Nylabone dog chews sold in a puppy starter kit are being recalled for possible salmonella contamination.

The food and drug administration says there’s a potential risk dogs and humans handling the bone-shaped chews could be infected. The recall is voluntary and no illnesses have been linked to the product.

Symptoms of salmonella infection include lethargy, fever vomiting and bowel upset.

The recalled puppy starter kit consists of one lot of dog chews that were distributed nationwide, to Canada and through one domestic online mail order facility.

Only packages carrying the lot number 21935 are affected.
