Bailey's Choice Recall

Bailey’s Choice Dog Treats has issued a voluntary recall of their chicken jerky treats due to Salmonella contamination.

Products Include:

 * Lot #132881 - June 5, 2013
 * Lot #132881 - August 28, 2013

These two lots tested positive for salmonella.

(These are the current dates on Bailey's Choice's Website, I've seen other dates on other websites announcing this recall - Therefore it is probably best to avoid  Lot #132881 for all dates)

Consumers who have purchased these Lots can receive a refund by contacting Bailey's Choice. They can be reached at 770-881-0526, by email at thomdo4570@gmail.com or online at www.baileyschoicetreats.com

Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause severe gastrointestinal disease. It can also affect other organ systems as well. Typical signs associated with Salmonella in pets include but are not limited to: vomiting, diarrhea, diarrhea with blood, lethargy, depression, weakness, loss of appetite, weight loss, fever, and abdominal pain.

Animals that don't show clinical signs can also be carriers of Salmonella and pass it to other pets and humans. If your pet has any signs or has ingested the product mentioned above, please contact your veterinarian.

Salmonella can also affect humans and there is a risk if you or someone you know has come in contact with pet food, treats or supplements contaminated with Salmonella, this includes dry products. The elderly, children and immunocompromised individuals are most at risk.

To reduce risk of infection, people should wash their hands with hot soapy water after touching pet foods and surfaces pet foods have come in contact with. The clinical signs are similar as in pets. If you or anyone you know is showing signs of illness after coming in contact with this product, contact your health care provider.
