Kasel Recalls Multiple Brands of Dog Treats

February 20, 2013According to an updated FDA news bulletin, Kasel Associated Industries is voluntarily recalling all products manufactured at its Denver, CO facility from April 20, 2012 through September 20, 2012 due to contamination with Salmonella bacteria.
Caution Sign
Salmonella can sicken animals that eat these products.

Humans are at risk for Salmonella poisoning from handling contaminated pet products, too.

This is especially true if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the pet products — or any surfaces exposed to these products.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Bloody diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramping

Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms.

Consumers exhibiting these symptoms after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting.

Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans.

If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has any of these signs, please contact your veterinarian.
