Redbarn Pet Products also recalled three-packs of 7-inch Bulky Sticks dog chews after the Colorado Department of Agriculture found salmonella in the product sold at one store, USA Today reported. In each instance, the company recalled these products after being alerted to positive findings of Salmonella and/or Listeria monocytogenes in samples of their raw pet food products.

The Minnesota Dept. of Health (MDH) reported two children from the same household were sickened by Salmonella R. Tests performed by the health department and the Minnesota Dept. of Agriculture (MDA) revealed that the same strain of S. These raw pet foods include ZooLogics Duck with Vegetable Meals for Dogs Lot #41957 and ZooLogics Chicken with Vegetable Meals for Dogs Lot #41567.

The FDA encourages consumers to report complaints about this and other pet food products electronically through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling their state's FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators.

Arrow Reliance/Darwin's Natural has notified its customers directly of the recalls via email, but so far has not issued any public notification announcing February 10 or any previous recalls. Affected product comes in a 2.4 ounce, green plastic bag marked with an expiration date of 112120ABC stamped on the side. The UPC of the recalled product is #7 85184 25105 8.

If you bought Redbarn 7 inch Bully Sticks, do not give it to your pet. Throw it away in a double bagged or sealed package in a secure garbage can, or take it back to the place of purchase for a refund.

The Raws for Paws Ground Turkey Pet Food was distributed in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The agency is investigating six complaints of illness and death in animals that had eaten the recalled products.

The products have case codes of 9900008, 9900009, 9900014, and 9900015.

The product affected was packaged in Turkey Pet Food cases with the manufacture date of 10/12/2017 and Combo Pack cases with a manufacture date between 10/12/2017 and 2/2/2018.

The recalled Beefy Munchies come in 4-ounce bags with a best by date of October 25, 2019, and a lot No. of 449294.

The FDA says salmonella can cause salmonellosis in humans and animals.

Two children also became ill after coming in contact with pet foods, the FDA said. Pets do not have to be apparently ill to be able to pass Salmonella onto their human companions. Some pets may only have a decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. The symptoms last up to a week and the majority of people recover without treatment, the FDA said.

As for people, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "Most persons infected with salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection".
