Dog Treat Recalls Surge. Sunland Inc.’s recent recall of Salmonella tainted peanut butter has now affected more pet treats made using peanut butter. Yoghund frozen dog yogurt treats in the Organic Banana & Peanut Butter Flavor, made by BD Brands, LLC., have been recalled by the FDA due to possible Salmonella bacterial contamination. These frozen dog snacks were sold and distributed across the United States. They were packaged in various quantities and marked with the lot code 268 12.
Consumers are welcome to return the dog snacks to the purchase site for a full refund. Concerned pet owners may contact the company directly for more information by calling 1-603-775-7772. Salmonella bacteria are Zoonotic which means they are transmissible between pets and people. Disease transmission can occur just by handling the treats. Signs of Salmonella bacterial contamination include vomiting and diarrhea with or without blood, lethargy, fevers and loss of appetite.
In addition, more severe symptoms in people may include arthritis, Endocarditis and urinary track issues. Pets that may have become infected with Salmonella should be taken to the veterinarian and sickened humans should contact their physician. Consumers should carefully discard the tainted dog treats and be sure practice good hygiene for example, by washing hands well to help prevent further spread and transmission of the bacteria.
