Petsmart Announces Product Recall of Dog Treats

Petsmart is expanding their product recall to include a dozen more dog treats made by Pet Carousel of Sanger.

It all started last week when Petsmart recalled its Dentley’s brand of Bulk Cattle Hooves and Choobles 10-Pack Beef Hooves after Pet Carousel informed them that the products may have been contaminated with salmonella.

The FDA then warned the public against using beef hoofs and pig ears made by Pet Carousel.

The affected products were marketed under the names:

• Doggie Delight
• Choo Hooves
• Dentley’s
• Pet Carousel

The FDA reportedly found Salmonella to be present in the pig ears, beef hooves and manufacturing environment.

Petsmart took the best move they can make and announced a voluntary product recall of the said products.

It should save the company from further embarrassment because of their swift action on the matter.

The product recall, though costs a lot of dollars, should save a lot of money for the company in the long run because it prevented possible product liability lawsuits from angry consumers.

Salmonella infections can make our beloved pets suffer severe symptoms like fever, abdominal pains, diarrhea, bloody diarrhea and vomiting.

And aside from making the pets sick, it can also affect humans.

Salmonella can be transmitted by contact so all consumers are advised to wash their hands after handling the products.
