Pig Ear Dog Treats Recalled over Salmonella Concerns


Pig ears sold as dog treats in 33 states, including Wisconsin are being recalled due to an outbreak of salmonella. Pet Supplies Plus is recalling the bulk pig ears that are sold in open bins at more than 400 stores across the United States. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are investigating the contaminated pig ears, with evidence showing that human contact with the dog treats is the likely source of a salmonella outbreak that has led to 45 people getting sick – including 12 hospitalizations – in 13 states. None of those 45 cases are confirmed to have resulted from purchasing pig ears from Pet Supplies Plus. Pets can also be affected by the contaminated products, and may be lethargic and have diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Anyone who may have purchased the bulk pig ears should throw them away.
