Pig ear dog treats recalled for possible salmonella confirmation

Posted: Updated:
EDISON -

Pet Supplies Plus is recalling Pig Ear Treats after an announcement made by the CDC and FDA that they are looking into a suspect link between the treats and human cases of salmonella.

According to the FDA, salmonella found in the treats can infect people, either from handling the product -- or directly from a dog that becomes ill.

The retailer recalled pig eat treats that were put in bins and sold individually. Pre-packaged brands have not been recalled.


Forty-five people in 13 states have been diagnosed with salmonella-related illnesses. But none of the cases have been confirmed to be a result from purchasing the product.

The treats were distrusted to Pet Supplies Plus locations in states that include New Jersey.
