ALERT UPDATED 2/20/2018: This recall has been expanded.
Dogs love to munch on a tasty snack, but if you load up on store-bought stuff then it’s time to check your treat stock. The dog treat company Smokehouse Pet Products, Inc is expanding their recall of all-natural beef dog treats. This comes just one week after a notice from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) saying inspectors found Salmonella.
The Original Report
During routine sampling and testing, the Colorado Department Of Agriculture revealed Salmonella in 4-ounce packages of “Beefy Munchies.”
The original alert only included “Beefy Munchies” 4-ounce bags marked with the UPC 78565857957 and Lot number 449294. Additionally, the treats included in the original notice had a best used by date of 10/25/19 stamped on the back.
The Updated Dog Treat Recall
Smokehouse Pet Products, Inc is now recalling all sizes and package types of their dog treats labeled as “Beefy Munchies.” According to the FDA, the recalled treats come in individual bags, resealable bags, and plastic tubs. All sizes and packaging types will include a UPC code, lot number, and a Best Used By date stamped on the back.
An FDA notice said the recalled “Beefy Munchies” were distributed nationwide through distributors selling to various retailers.
What To Do If You Have These Recalled Dog Treats
As of the updated publication of this article, no illnesses were reported. With that said, a recall notice from the FDA is urging pet parents to stop giving these snacks to their pups.
Consumers who have purchased “Beefy Munchies” should stop using them immediately and may return any unused treats for a full refund. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact Smokehouse Pet Products, Inc. at 1-877-699-7387. They’re open Monday-Friday 7 am-3:30 pm PST.
