Pet Treats Recalled on Salmonella Fears

Pet Carousel Recalls Pig Ear, Cow Hoof Dog Treats Because of Possible Salmonella Contamination


“Salmonella can cause gastroenteritis in dogs, including symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea,” the FDA says in its warning. “Some dogs will shed salmonella in their stools without ever showing any symptoms of illness. If any stool clings to an infected dog’s coat near the anus (not unusual with long-haired breeds), the salmonella can be spread to other parts of the coat by licking, and then transferred to anyone who pets, or is licked by, the dog.”

The FDA’s warning on Nov. 10 followed an alert issued Nov. 5.

Pet Carousel says it issued a news release “out of an abundance of caution and concern for public safety.”

The FDA says it detected salmonella in Pet Carousel products in September, prompting an inspection of the company’s facilities, during which salmonella was found in beef hooves, pig ears, and in the manufacturing environment.

The affected pig ear products were packaged under the brand names Doggie Delight, Pork Tasteez, and Pet Carousel, item number:

  • 18100-P Bulk      
  • 18016-P 10-pk red mesh bag 
  • 18120-P 20-pk red mesh bag.
