Certain dog treats are being recalled by a firm based in North Carolina after testing of the product revealed the presence of potentially dangerous bacteria.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a recall for many sizes and batches of dog treats manufactured by Stormberg Foods, including Beg & Barker Chicken Breast Strips Dog Treats, Billo's Best Friend Chicken Breast Strips Dog Treats, and Green Coast Pets Chicken Crisps Dog Treats (FDA).


According to Stormberg Foods' recall, the impacted products were sent between June 8 and June 22 to warehouses in California, Minnesota, North Carolina, and Rhode Island before being sent across the country to retail locations and customers online.


Infected animals may exhibit signs of fatigue, decreased appetite, stomach pain, bloody diarrhea, fever, and sometimes vomiting. Infected animals that don't exhibit any symptoms occasionally transmit the disease to other animals or people.

Among the salmonella symptoms are fever, diarrhea, nauseousness, vomiting, and stomach discomfort. According to the warning, it can also "result in more serious diseases" in rare instances.

No illnesses have been noted as of yet. However, the business, the NCDA, and CS are still looking into what went wrong.

The goodies came in plastic bags with trademarked graphics.
