Ga. company recalls pet treats

By Staff
ATLANTA - The Georgia Department of Agriculture said Thursday a Georgia-based company is recalling some of its pet treats because of possible salmonella contamination.

Bailey's Choice Dog Treats, LLC, of Waleska, Ga., said the recall involves packages of chicken treats in various sizes marked with lot number #132881 and expiration date Feb. 2014, along with five-ounce bags of chicken jerky with a lot number of "Jun 5 2013."

In a press statement, Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black said inspectors are in the process of checking retail stores and warehouses to make sure the recalled products have been removed from sale.

Company owner Roger Thomas wrote to customers saying, "We are working hard to find the problem and will correct it immediately to ensure safe products for both human and our four legged friends."

The Agriculture Department said dogs that have become infected by consuming treats contaminated with salmonella may experience fever, lethargy, diarrhea or mucus in stool, vomiting, dehydration, weight loss or rapid heart rate. Pets experiencing these symptoms should be taken to a veterinarian immediately.

To date, no illnesses have been reported.

Consumers who purchased these products for their pets should immediately discard the product, according to ag department officials. Bailey's Choice Dog Treats LLC will provide a full refund and can be reached at 770-881-0526, thomdo4570@gmail.com or online at www.baileyschoicetreats.com .
