Does your dog love to slobber and chew on bully sticks? If so, you’ll want to check your latest purchase. The dog treat company Redbarn Pet Products LLC is voluntarily recalling a selection of their bully sticks due to possible Salmonella contamination.
Redbarn Pet Products officials are stressing that no illnesses or complaints have been reported. However, the President Jeff Sutherland confirmed the Colorado Department of Agriculture detected Salmonella in a single sample collected from one of their retail locations.
At Redbarn, we test every product lot before it leaves our manufacturing plant. This lot code, expiry date 112120ABC, was tested both at our Redbarn lab and by a third-party testing facility. Those tests were negative for salmonella or pathogens. Despite not being able to replicate these test results or receiving any negative reports from customers regarding these chews, we feel the best course of action is to recall this lot code of the product and keep our customers safe.
– President Jeff Sutherland
What Customers Should Look For
The recalled product was distributed in specialty retail stores. You’ll want to be on the lookout for their 7-inch Bully Stick Dog Chews 3-pack. They come in a 2.4 ounce, green plastic bag and looks like this:
The packaging for these recalled treats will be marked with this expiration date: 112120ABC. Additionally, the recalled product’s UPC is #7 85184 25105 8.
What To Do If You Have These Bully Sticks
The first thing to do is check your bully stick packaging to see if you have the recalled chews. If so, don’t feed them to your pup. Rather, anyone who has purchased the 7-inch bully stick multipacks with affected lot codes is being asked to return the product to your area retailer for a full refund.
