Bailey's Choice recalls some teriyaki chicken dog treats

Posted: Updated:

(AP) - A Georgia-based dog food company has expanded a recall involving its teriyaki dog treats over salmonella concerns.
    
Officials from Bailey's Choice say a recall of the company's Teriyaki Chicken Treats has expanded to include Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Delaware and Tennessee.
    
The company first issued a recall of several varieties of chicken treats last week after the Georgia Department of Agriculture found salmonella in the products during routine testing.
    
In a statement Tuesday, company spokesman Roger Thomas said Bailey's Choice is working with the state Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug administration to remove the pet treats from stores.
    
Thomas says the company has repaired a digital thermostat that caused a dehydrator used to maintain proper temperatures to malfunction.

FDA news release from Nov. 6th before recall expansion:

November 6, 2013 - Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black is alerting Georgians to the expanded recall of particular packages of Bailey's Choice dog treats sold in Georgia. These products have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella and should be discarded.

Bailey's Choice Dog Treats, LLC, of Waleska, Ga., is expanding the recall to include additional five-ounce packages of dog treats, including:

  • 100% Chicken Treat, lot # "Jun 2 2013"
  • 100% Chicken Treat, lot # "Jun 3 2013"
  • 100% Chicken Breast Treat, lot # "Jun 4 2013"
  • 100% Chicken Treat, lot # "Jun 15 2013"
  • 100% Chicken Treat, lot # "Jul 8 2013"
  • 100% Chicken Treat, lot # "Jul 11 2013"
  • 100% Teriyaki Chicken Treats, lot # 132881

Georgia Department of Agriculture inspectors will continue checking retail stores and warehouses to make sure the recalled products have been removed from sale.

Dogs that have become infected by consuming treats contaminated with Salmonella may experience fever, lethargy, diarrhea or mucus in stool, vomiting, dehydration, weight loss or rapid heart rate. Pets experiencing these symptoms should be taken to a veterinarian immediately. This bacterial disease is zoonotic, meaning it can be transmitted to humans.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea that may be bloody, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses, such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis. The very young, the elderly, and persons with compromised immune systems are most susceptible to foodborne illnesses. People experiencing these symptoms should seek immediate medical attention.

To date, no illnesses have been reported.

Consumers who purchased these products for their pets should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions should contact Bailey's Choice Dog Treats, LLC, for additional information at 770-881-0526 or thomdo4570@gmail.com or online at www.baileyschoicetreats.com.
