PetSmart Expands Recall on Pet Carousel, Inc. Products

    PHOENIX, AZ — PetSmart is extending a voluntary recall on beef hoof products to include a total of 14 products. These items were manufactured by Pet Carousel, Inc. in Sanger, Calif., and include beef hoof chews as well as certain rope toys with hoof or bone components. The date range for purchasing affected products has been expanded to include products purchased from Sept. 1, 2009 to November 6, 2009.
    PetSmart announced it was voluntarily recalling two Dentley's beef hoof products on November 3, 2009, after learning they may have been contaminated with Salmonella during the manufacturing process (Dentley's Bulk Cattle Hooves and Dentley's Choobles 10-Pack Beef Hooves). Twelve additional products have since been added to the voluntary recall.
