5-28- 14Pet Center Inc~ Recalls Treats

Pet Center Inc has recalled the three ounce bag of Lamb Crunchy's  due to the possible risk of Salmonella.

   3 OZ BAG  (LAM-003)         UPC # 727348200038               Date code 122015

By now the majority  of you know that  salmonella can spread to humans through touching such treats and not washing your hands.  Salmonella can produce flu like symptoms in humans with the very young and the elderly being most affected.  Watch for vomiting , diarrhea. stomach cramping, and fever. Though a bit more rare for healthy people, watch for further ailments that are more severe such as muscle pain, eye irritation, arterial infections, arthritis, endocarditis and  urinary tract symptoms.

Endocarditis is an infection of the inner lining of your heart which can destroy your heart valves.

Keep in mind that some animals are carriers and may not show symptoms so if you have multiple dogs and one or two do not show symptoms of vomiting , diarrhea, lethargy, fever  or abdominal pain, it does not mean they are not affected.      

Consumers can  return the  product at the place of purchase or call the company at 800. 390 .0525

This was detected through  a random sample tested by the  Dept Of Ag in the state of Colorado
