A Georgia-based company is expanding its recall of some packages of dog treats due to possible salmonella contamination, according to the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
Bailey's Choice Dog Treats, LLC, of Waleska, Ga., said it is expanding the recall to include additional five-ounce packages of dog treats, including:
- 100% Chicken Treat, lot # "Jun 2 2013"

- 100% Teriyaki Chicken Treats, lot # 132881
Georgia Department of Agriculture inspectors are continuing to check retail stores and warehouses to make sure the recalled products have been removed from sale.
The Department of Agriculture said in a press release that 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. This bacterial disease is zoonotic, meaning it can be transmitted to humans.
No illnesses have been reported, according to the statement.
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, email@example.com or online at www.baileyschoicetreats.com.
