Boots and Barkley dog treats sold by Target recalled


Dog treats sold nationwide by Target under the Boots & Barkley brand are being recalled over potential salmonella contamination.

Denver-based Kasel Associated Industries issued the voluntary recall of its American Beef Bully Sticks that were sold at Target stores between April and September.

The FDA is warning pet owners to be on the lookout for signs of salmonella in their pets and cautions humans handling to treats to wash their hands thoroughly because salmonella can infect humans who touch the product.

No illnesses have been reported in humans or pets.

People who may have been infected with salmonella could experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. In rare cases, the bacteria can lead to severe symptoms like arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain and urinary tract symptoms.

Pet owners should contact their veterinarian if their pet appears lethargic or has diarrhea (sometimes bloody), fever and vomiting.

Kasel is recalling all lot numbers of the sticks after tests by Colorado's Department of Agriculture found salmonella in the following four lots: BESTBY20APR2014DEN, BESTBY01JUN2014DEN, BESTBY23JUN2014DEN, and BESTBY23SEP2014DEN.

Consumers who have purchased the six-count 5-inch packages of Boots & Barkley American Beef Bully Sticks are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Kasel Associated Industries at 1-800-218-4417.
