The Colorado Department of Agriculture also prompted the recall of Smokehouse Pet Products' four-ounce bags of Beefy Munchies for dogs after it found salmonella in two packages manufactured by the company. Bully Sticks chews for dogs manufactured by Redbarn Pet Products (Long Beach, Calif.) were recalled after a sample tested positive for salmonella.

The FDA said two people had picked up salmonella from a product called Raws for Paws. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture confirmed the presence of salmonella after testing products manufactured by the company. These raw pet foods include ZooLogics Duck with Vegetable Meals for Dogs Lot #41957 and ZooLogics Chicken with Vegetable Meals for Dogs Lot #41567.

To date, no illnesses, injuries, or complaints have been reported due to the recalled product. The recalled product was distributed in Washington, Michigan, North Carolina and Colorado through distributors selling to various retailers. The product UPC is #7 85184 25105 8.

The most recent recall on February 10 was for ZooLogics Duck with Vegetable Meals for Dogs (Lot #41957) and ZooLogics Chicken with Vegetable Meals for Dogs (Lot #41567) because the products may be contaminated with Salmonella.

The affected products are packaged into regular Turkey Pet Food cases and Pet Food Combo Pack cases, which contain a variety of pet food products. The codes for these cases are 9900008, 9900009, 9900014, and 9900015. In addition, lab analysis of closed packages of Darwin's pet food obtained by FDA from Judy on January 24 found Salmonella in the product. They have the UPC Code: 78565857957, Lot number: 449294 and are marked with the Best Used By Date of 10/25/19. Pets can get sick and/or carry the bacteria to infect humans. Typically, a person or pet affected with salmonella experiences symptoms such as fever, body aches, nausea, and vomiting for four to seven days, and they often clear up on their own.

Although not all pets display symptoms when infected, those who do may have symptoms within 72 hours of infection. People who think they or their pets have become ill from exposure to contaminated raw pet food should talk to their health care providers or veterinarians. Pets do not have to be apparently ill to be able to pass Salmonella to their human companions.
