Nylabone Dog Chew Contaminated With Salmonella?


Federal health officials announced Monday that certain dog chews are being recalled because they may have been contaminated with Salmonella.

The Food and Drug Administration warned owners who touched the Nylabone Puppy Starter Kit dog chews that they are at risk of infection if they didn’t thoroughly wash their hands and clean everything in the household that may have come in contact with the chews.

The FDA said symptoms of Salmonella in humans include nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, while pets with Salmonella exhibit lethargy and have diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem, according to the FDA.

The company, TFC Publications Inc. /Nylabone Products, discovered the possible contamination after a routine testing and decided to recall one lot of their chews, a 1.69 ounce package marked with Lot #21935, with an expiration date of 3/22/18. The chews were distributed nationwide and in Canada.

People should immediately stop using the products and return them to the store for a full refund.

Consumers with questions can contact the company at (877) 273-7527.
