New Hampshire-based dog treat manufacturer, Kritter’s Kitchen Kreations, LLC is voluntarily recalling their line of chicken jerky dog treats after at least 21 people became infected with Salmonella.
The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services announced the recall of all lots and packages of Kritter’s Kitchen Kreations’ Joey’s Jerky Chicken Treats due to presence of Salmonella bacteria.
Salmonella is a bacterium that causes the illness salmonellosis.
Symptoms also include fever and abdominal cramps within 12-72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts from four to seven days. Although most people recover without treatment, severe infections may occur that may move to other body sites, and in rare
cases, can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics.
While Salmonella rarely affects dogs, 21 New Hampshire residents of Merrimack and Hillsborough Counties have become ill after handling the treats.
Joey’s Jerky was sold at the following six stores: America’s Pet in Hudson, Blue Seal in Bow, K9 Kaos in Dover, Osborne’s Agway in Concord, Sandy’s Pet Food Center in Concord, and The Yellow Dogs Barn in Barrington.
The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services is urging anyone who has purchased the treats to discontinue feeding and discard any leftover product.
