    Default Treat Recall 2/20/13 Nutri-Vet (yea ANOTHER chicken Jerky!)


    Nutri-Vet Recalls Chicken Jerky Dog Treats

    by Mike Sagman

    February 20, 2013 – According to an FDA bulletin, Nutri-Vet, LLC. of Boise, Idaho, is voluntarily recalling its Nutri-Vet and NutriPet Chicken Jerky treats products because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.

    Salmonella can sicken animals that eat these products.
    Humans are at risk for Salmonella poisoning from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not washed their hands thoroughly enough after having contact with affected items.
    Or any surfaces exposed to these products.
    Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms:

    Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms.
    Consumers exhibiting these symptoms 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 any of these signs, please contact your veterinarian.
    What’s Being Recalled?

    Nutri-Vet is recalling the lot numbers below because the producer of an ingredient used in the products below informed the company of the possibility of the presence of Salmonella at the manufacturing facility.
    According to the report, no positive test results have been found on Nutri-Vet or NutriPet products to date.
    The recalled Chicken Jerky Treats were distributed nationwide through online sales and in retail stores from April 2012 through February 2013 with Best By Dates ranging from April 20, 2014, through October 3, 2014.
    The product comes in a clear plastic bag containing Chicken Jerky Treats as described below:

    The U.S. based supplier has ceased the production and distribution of the ingredient supplied to Nutri-Vet. The FDA and the manufacturer continue their investigation into the source of the contamination.
    No other products made by Nutri-Vet are included in the recall.
    What to Do?

    Consumers who have purchased Nutri-Vet and NutriPet Chicken Jerky Products are urged to stop feeding them to pets and return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Nutri-Vet at (877) 729-8668 Monday thru Friday from 7am to 5pm MDT.
