Two companies announced separate recalls on Wednesday of pet food and dog treats.

Kasel Associated Industries is pulling
a wide variety of dog treats over salmonella contamination. The recall covers a wide variety of treats, from chicken jerky to pig ears to hearts of lamb, produced in its plant in Denver between April and October last year. The items were sold in Target, Costco, Sam’s Club and through its website.

A Kasel official said the Colorado Department of Agriculture found salmonella in its chicken jerky, prompting a recall of that product in September. The Food and Drug Administration investigated, urging the company to issue the wider recall.

Nature’s Variety announced its own recall of raw organic chicken for cats and dogs after receiving a complaint by a customer that pieces of plastic were in a bag.  The company, with manufactures in Lincoln, Neb. but sells nationwide, said it found and fixed the problem.

The chicken was sold nationwide in bags and cases with a best-by date of Oct. 4, 2013.

  2. I have not always been so thoughtful. This book is putting me over the edge, I am kind of crashing into myself. Unfortunately, once the error of my ways hits me in the face, I must change. ugh. merirajjo

  3. I totally agree with the other two. You couldn't have had the other two without all the hard work you guys put into it and I know first hand. Any one that knows you, knows that you are good kind people. It is sad that that some people can't come up with their own creative ideas. It would have been better for the whole community.
