Kasel Associated Industries Recalls Nature's Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats Because of Possible Salmonella Health Risk

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—October 2, 2012—Kasel Associated Industries of Denver, CO, is voluntarily recalling its NATURE'S DELI CHICKEN JERKY DOG TREATS product because it may be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella can sicken animals that eat these products, and humans are at risk for salmonella poisoning from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the pet products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

    Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these symptoms after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

    Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has any of these signs, please contact your veterinarian.

    The recalled Chicken Jerky Dog Treats were distributed to 57 Sam's Club locations in the following states: CO, IA, ID, IL, KS, MO, MT, NE, OK, SD, UT and WY.

    The product comes in a clear plastic bag with the Nature's Deli logo containing 2.5 lbs chicken jerky marked with UPC bar code 647263800208. Kasel Industries is recalling lot number BEST BY 091913 DEN because this lot code tested positive through analysis by the FDA.

    No illnesses have been reported to date in animals or humans in connection with this product.

    The recall was the result of a routine sampling by the FDA that revealed finished products contained the Salmonella bacteria. The company has ceased distribution of any lots that have possible contamination of the bacteria. No other products made by Kasel Associated Industries are included in the recall of 2.5 lbs packages of Chicken Jerky Dog Treats.

    Consumers who have purchased the 2.5 lbs packages of Chicken Jerky Dog Treats are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Kasel Associated Industries at (800) 218-4417 Monday thru Friday from 7am to 5pm MDT.
