Carolina Prime Pet Inc Recalls All Natural Bullstrips

On November 20, 2012, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that Carolina Prime Pet Inc was recalling its Priority Total Pet Care All Natural Bullstrips that come in a package of five.  The product may contain Salmonella.

The specific lot of the all natural bullstrips was tested by the Colorado Department of Agriculture and tested positive for Salmonella.  Carolina Prime Pet has not received any reports of illnesses so far.  

The FDA reports that humans can become sick from handling contaminated pet products, and animals can become sick from Salmonella as well.  Pet owners are always encouraged to wash their hands after handling dog treats.  

Common symptoms of Salmonella include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever.  The infection can lead to more serious conditions like arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, eye irritation, urinary tract infections, and more in some cases.  

Pets can develop symptoms like diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting.  Pet will often become lethargic and show signs of a fever, decreased appetite, or abdominal pain if infected with Salmonella.  You should contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet consumed the recalled product.  

The recalled pet treats were sold in Safeway stores located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Maryland, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington DC and Wyoming.  The pet treats were also sold in Vons, Pavilions and Pak ‘N Save stores in CA; Randalls and Tom Thumb stores in TX; Genuardi’s stores in PA and NJ; and Dominick’s in IL.  The product was distributed from September to November 20, 2012.
