2007-03-25-Recall! Pig ear dog treats


March 25, 2007:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — North Bergen, NJ — March 23, 2007 —
Petrapport, Inc. is voluntarily recalling pig ear dog treats it  imported from a Chilean company during the period August 2006 through December 2006 because the pig ears have the potential to be  contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious infections in dogs, and, if there is cross contamination, young  children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune  systems.

Laboratory testing has confirmed that samples of Full-Cut Pig Ears dog treats sold by BJ’s Wholesale Club in 25-count packages under the  “Berkley & Jensen” brand with no lot number and only the expiration  advisory “BEST IF USED BY 2009” (without referencing a specific month)  were contaminated with Salmonella.

Additional testing of other pig ear dog treats from shipments during  the above time period has not revealed any additional evidence of  Salmonella contamination, but Petrapport nonetheless is voluntarily  recalling them out of an abundance of caution due to concern that the  pig ears imported during this period may not have been effectively  irradiated for Salmonella before shipment from Chile.

The voluntary recall includes dog treats sold by BJ’s Wholesale Club  in its 25-count packages of “Berkley & Jensen” Full-Cut Pig Ears dog  treats with no lot number and only the expiration advisories “BEST IF  USED BY 2009” (without referencing a specific month) as well as “BEST  IF USED BY SEPTEMBER 2009,” “BEST IF USED BY OCTOBER 2009,” “BEST IF  USED BY NOVEMBER 2009,” and “BEST IF USED BY DECEMBER 2009.”

Also included within this voluntary recall are the following lots of  pig ear dog treats sold in bulk by other retailers under the  “Petrapport” brand:

Salmonella can potentially be transferred to people handling these dog  treats, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands  after having contact with the product or any surfaces exposed to these  products. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience  fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal  pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in  the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe  illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms),  endocarditis and arthritis. Consumers exhibiting these signs after  having contact with this product should contact their healthcare  providers.

Dogs that become ill from Salmonella generally will have a fever and  diarrhea that may contain blood or mucus. Affected animals may seem  more tired that usual, and may have vomiting. Some dogs do not have  diarrhea, but will have decreased appetite, fever and excess  salivation. If your dog has consumed the recalled product and is  exhibiting these signs, please contact your veterinarian.

While there have been no confirmed illnesses to date, consumers should  immediately stop feeding these treats to their dogs. These products  have been removed from the sales floors and the sales inventories of  all retailers.

Consumers who purchased any of the above-identified pig ear dog treats  should discontinue use of the products and may return the unused  portion to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers who have further questions may contact Petrapport at  800-447-3872 extension 110.
