Georgia Ag Comm. warns of possible salmonella in dog treats

ATLANTA, GA (WALB) -

Georgia agriculture officials issued a consumer advisory for pet treats distributed in the Peach State.

“Good ‘n’ Fun Beef hide Chicken Sticks” pet treats distributed in Georgia by Salix Animal Health, LLC are being inspected.

Commissioner Gary Black said the treats have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

According to a state report, Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

“Good ‘n’ Fun Beef hide Chicken Sticks” were sold in Georgia in 2.8 oz. packages and the package displays the lot number A015010EX03/2018, a UPC number of 0 91093 82247 1 and Item # 82247. The products were distributed by Salix Animal Health, LLC, of Deerfield Beach, Fla.

The stop sale was initiated after routine testing by the GDA revealed the presence of Salmonella. The product should not be sold or fed to pets. If consumers have the product at home, they are encouraged to dispose of it in the garbage.

The GDA Agriculture Inputs Program may be contacted for additional information at 404-656-4958.
