Maker: Redbarn Pet Products, LLC
Cause: Potential for salmonella
Announcement: FDA report dated Feb. 9, 2018 and a company news release
What was recalled: 2.4 oz. green plastic bags of Redbarn Naturals 7 Inch Bully Sticks Premium Dog Chews (3-pack) with expiration date of “112120ABC”
According to the FDA’s announcement, Redbarn Pet Products says it tests each lot of products — including this lot — before it ever leaves its manufacturing facility, and its own tests were negative. But earlier this month, the company was “notified by the Colorado Department of Agriculture that a single sample collected from a retail location detected salmonella,” said company president Jeff Sutherland.
“Despite not being able to replicate these test results or receiving any negative reports from customers regarding these chews, we feel the best course of action is to recall this lot code of the product and keep our customers safe,” Sutherland said.
The recalled products were distributed in pet specialty retail stores. No illnesses, injuries or complaints have been reported.
