The company announced on Saturday that it is recalling a limited supply of its "Nature's Recipe Oven Baked Biscuits with Real Chicken." The product was manufactured at its plant in Topeka, Kan., and distributed nationally - primarily through pet specialty retailers.
According to the company, the product has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella, which can affect animals eating the products and pose a risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products.
No pet or human illnesses have been reported, but Nature's Recipe officials suggest that pet owners monitor themselves and their dogs for signs of salmonella and seek medical care if symptoms worsen.
The treats involved in the recall were sold in 19-ounce stand-up re-sealable pouches. They are marked with the Lot Codes 2199TP or 2200TP and a UPC Code of 30521 51549. The pouches also have a "Best If Used By Date" stamp of "10 11 13" and "10 12 13."
Nature's Recipe says the recall is out of precaution, advising consumers who bought the treats to discard them. For more information about the recall, consumers can go to www.naturesrecipe.com or call the consumer hotline, 24 hours a day, at (800) 237-3856.
