Ga. pet food company expanding dog treat recall

Posted: Updated:

WALESKA, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia-based dog food company has expanded a recall involving its teriyaki dog treats over salmonella concerns.

Officials from Bailey's Choice say a recall of the company's Teriyaki Chicken Treats has expanded to include Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Delaware and Tennessee.

The company first issued a recall of several varieties of chicken treats last week after the Georgia Department of Agriculture found salmonella in the products during routine testing.

In a statement Tuesday, company spokesman Roger Thomas said Bailey's Choice is working with the state Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug administration to remove the pet treats from stores.

Thomas says the company has repaired a digital thermostat that caused a dehydrator used to maintain proper temperatures to malfunction.

On its website, the company said in part, "Bailey's Choice is issuing a voluntary recall of our chicken jerky treats that have two lot dates: June 5, 2013 and August 28, 2013 (Lot #132881). We have had no reports of anyone or any pet becoming sick. It is more dangerous to humans. As with all raw foods, after handling jerky products, we recommend washing your hands thoroughly."

Anyone who bought the treats should immediately discard them. 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.
