Last week the Food and Drug Administration announced that Stormberg Foods is recalling several brands and varieties of its dog treat products due to the possibility of salmonella contamination.

Batches of the Beg & Barker Chicken Breast Strips Dog Treat, Billo’s Best Friend Chicken Breast Strips Dog Treat, and Green Coast Pets Chicken Crisps Dog Treat products are being recalled by the North Carolina-based manufacturer. The recall includes multiple sizes and batches of each product.

The products were shipped nationwide between June 8 and June 22. Most were shipped to MN, NC, RI, and CA warehouses, but some were shipped directly to consumers.

The potentially contaminated products are as follows:

• Beg & Barker Chicken Breast Strips Dog — 1-ounce, 4-ounce, and 10-ounce bags, with expiration dates ranging from June 6, 2023, to June 23, 2023 (all batch numbers)
• Bags of Billo’s Best Friend Chicken Breast Strips — 4 ounces, containing expiration dates ranging from June 6, 2023, to June 23, 2023 (all batch numbers)
• Green Coast Pets Chicken Crisps — 4-ounce and 8-ounce packs, with best-by dates ranging from June 6, 2023, to June 23, 2023 (all batch numbers)

Visit the FDA’s website for pictures of the recalled treat packaging and UPC codes.

The North Carolina Department of Agriculture alerted Stormberg on July 6 that a sample they had obtained tested positive for salmonella, prompting the company to issue a recall, which was announced on Tuesday, July 12.

Salmonella infections in pets can cause various symptoms, including lethargy, diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets’ only symptoms may be a loss of appetite, fever, and gastrointestinal pain.

Salmonella-infected pets that are otherwise healthy might not exhibit any symptoms, but they still risk spreading the disease to other animals or people. Anyone whose pet exhibits any of these symptoms should contact their veterinarian.

Humans who handled the products without properly washing their hands may also be at risk of contracting salmonella and experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. Anyone experiencing these symptoms who has handled the recalled treats should contact their health provider.

According to the FDA, there have been no reports of illness yet.

Consumers who have purchased these items and have pets that have become ill are strongly encouraged to contact Stormberg Foods by email at stormbergship@gmail.com with product information to receive assistance on how to return or dispose of the products properly.

Customers who have inquiries can call the customer care department at 919-947-6011 between 3 a.m. and 9 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) Monday through Saturday.
