The Natural Dog Company, Inc. is recalling some dog treats due to a possible contamination with Salmonella.

The Colorado-based company is recalling its 12oz bags of 12" Tremenda Sticks after a Colorado Department of Agriculture inspection showed a presence of Salmonella in a sample taken from one of the packages, according to the company's press release.

The Salmonella could affect the dogs as well as humans handling the treats, especially if the person did not thoroughly wash their hands after being in contact with the Tremenda Sticks.

Common symptoms in infected people with Salmonella include, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Consumers exhibiting those symptoms should contact their doctor. If a pet has been infected, they may become lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. If a pet has consumed the recalled treats and has these symptoms, you should contact your veterinarian.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled product, the company said.
The recalled treats were distributed in California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, Montana,

North Carolina, Ohio, Utah, and Washington. The product comes in a 12oz bag without a lot number or expiration date with UPC number: 851265004957. Products with new packaging, which includes both a lot number and expiration date but the same UPC are not affected by this recall.

Product production has been suspended while the FDA conducts an investigation. Consumers are encouraged to return the treats to the place of purchase for a refund.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-888-424-4602/
