The Boulder Dog Food Company is voluntarily recalling the Turkey Sprinkles food enhancer because of potential Salmonella contamination.
Last month, the company recalled Chicken Sprinkles for the same issue.
This company is recalling their Turkey Sprinkles 3 oz with the following details:
- Best By date: 05/18/16, 05/28/2016,05/30/2016
- Lot Number: 743
- UPC Code: 899883001224.
The recalled products are in a clear poly bag with the UPC Code located in the lower right hand corner of the product label on the front of the bag. The “Best By” date and Lot Number are on a label on the back of the bag in the center.
The recall is a result of a routine sampling program by the FDA which revealed a “positive” test for Salmonella in the Turkey Sprinkles.
Salmonella can affect animals who eat the product. Humans who handle the product are also at risk, especially if the handler does not thoroughly wash his or her hands after having contact with the product or any surfaces exposed to the product.
Infected pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will only have decreased appetite, fever and tummy pain.
Infected but otherwise healthy pets can still be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If you think your pet has consumed the product and is exhibiting these symptoms, you should contact your veterinarian immediately.
