The Natural Dog Company has recalled select 12-ounce bags of Tremenda Sticks after the Colorado Department of Agriculture discovered the pet chews were contaminated with Salmonella.

The contaminated products are 12-ounce bags of 12-inch Tremenda Sticks with the UPC 851265004957. The Salmonella-positive chews come in packaging that has no expiration date or lot number. Bags that share the same UPC but have an expiration date and lot number printed on them are not contaminated.

The Natural Dog Company has temporarily stopped production of Tremenda Sticks until the cause for the contamination is found.

Salmonella-positive Tremenda Sticks were sold to stores in California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, Ohio, Utah, and Washington.

Dog owners who purchased bags that were found contaminated with Salmonella can return the product to the store they bought it from for a full refund.

To date, no illnesses or deaths have been reported due to this product.

Symptoms of Salmonella include abdominal cramping, diarrhea, fever, and loss of appetite.
