More pig ear treats recalled for potential Salmonella contamination

Dog Goods USA LLC of Tobyhanna, Pa., is recalling its Chef Toby Pig Ears Treats after FDA testing revealed Salmonella contamination in one of the products. According to the company, no illnesses have been linked to the products to date.

The pig ears were purchased from a single supplier in Brazil from September 2018 through August 2019 and were distributed to retail stores nationwide. The affected lot codes include:

428590, 278989, 087148, 224208, 1168723, 428590, 222999, 074599, 1124053, 226884, 578867, 224897, 1234750, 444525, 1106709, 215812, 230273, 224970, 585246, 327901, 052248, 210393, 217664, 331199, 225399, 867680, 050273, 881224, 424223, 225979, 431724, 226340, 880207, 334498.

Consumers who have purchased the products are urged to stop feeding them and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Questions may directed to Dog Goods at 786-401-6533 (ext 8000).

This is the latest in a string of pig ear recalls that in July prompted the FDA to issue a warning to consumers about pig ear treats. Previous recalls include products from Lennox and Pet Supplies Plus. The FDA’s investigation into the cause of these contaminations is ongoing.
