RECALL ALERT: Dog Treats Recalled Due To Possible Salmonella


If you buy commercial dog treats for your canine kids it’s time to check those bags. Loving Pets has issued a voluntary dog treat recall due to possible Salmonella contamination. 

According to The Food and Drug Administration, as of the time this article was published no illnesses, injuries or complaints have been reported. Rather, the supplier’s internal quality assurance team identified the issue and decided to recall the product for safety purposes. 

“The possible Salmonella contamination was due to a single finished ingredient that was supplied to Loving Pets from a USA based supplier,” wrote the FDA. “Loving Pets produces its treats in small batches, in order to offer the highest quality and control in safety.”

Salmonella Risks

Salmonella is a bacterial disease that can affect animals who eat contaminated foods and humans who either eat or handle contaminated foods. 

According to the FDA:

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs 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 these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.
