Health warning Contact with some pet treats can give people salmonella

CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are investigating a multistate outbreak of multidrug-resistant Salmonella I 4, [5], 12:i:- infections linked to contact with pig ear dog treats.

Illnesses in the outbreak started on dates between November 18, 2018, and June 13, 2019.

A probe uncovered a link between the sicknesses and dog treats, finding that 34 people reported contact with a dog before getting sick and 17 people reported contact with pig ear dog treats or with dogs who were fed such treats.

They're, in fact, so popular among the growing number of dog owners in the USA that fancy recipes for preservative-free smoked pig ears for your pup are popping up online.

Pet Supplies pulled bulk pig ear product from the shelves at all of our stores and have stopped shipping bulk pig ears from our Distribution Center. 45 people from 13 states have been affected after making contact with the treats.

But it seems the current outbreak is tied to shop-bought pig ears, though officials have not yet identified a common supplier. The CDC warns that the number of reported illnesses could rise because it usually takes people a few weeks to report their illness after becoming ill.

"It's not clear why some brands of pig ears have tested positive for Salmonella and others have not".

The department says lab samples from two retailers in MI tested positive for Salmonella, but it did not name the retailers. Investigators are checking to see if any human illnesses are linked to those strains.

Iowa had the most cases with 12; MI had seven and NY had six.

Iowa and MI have reported the highest number of cases in this outbreak-12 and 7 respectively-followed by New York, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Pennsylvania, California, North Dakota, South Carolina and Wisconsin. All of the other states had three or less.

Always wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after touching unpackaged pet treats, such as food or treats in bulk bins. The map was released on July 2, 2019.
