Packaged and distributed by Kasel Associates Industries Inc., of Denver, certain Nature’s Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats that may be contaminated with salmonella, are being *recalled* by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as announced Thursday. The company has declined to perform a voluntary recall at this time.

*Technically, the FDA has only issued a Warning, not a Recall, but for safety purposes I’ll call it a recall.

The Chicken Jerky Treats under recall were sold in 3 lb packages and at Costco stores in the Denver area.

Lot number BESTBY061913DEN

In pets, salmonella infection can cause decreased appetite, lethargy, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, vomiting and abdominal pain. Pets that are infected but otherwise healthy can be carriers and infect other pets and humans.

People whose pets have eaten the treats or are experiencing any of the above symptoms should contact their veterinarian right away, the FDA advised.

Otherwise healthy people infected with salmonella may experience symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. In rare cases, salmonella can cause more serious problems.

Consumers who have purchased the packages of Chicken Jerky Dog Treats are urged dispose of the product in ways that people and animals, including wild animals, cannot get at them.

On a side note, these products were made in the USA and are not associated with the ongoing investigation of reported illnesses in dogs and consumption of chicken jerky treats.
