Blue Buffalo, which makes natural foods and treats for dogs and cats, is recalling some of its Cub Size Wilderness Wild Chews Bones that were sold in PetSmart stores in Washington and eight other states, because they may be contaminated with salmonella, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The chew bones come individually shrink-wrapped in plastic with UPC number 840243110087 printed on a sticker affixed to the product, and an expiration date of November 4, 2017, printed as “exp 110417” on the shrink-wrap, the FDA says. It is the only lot affected.
They were sold starting Nov. 19 in PetSmart stores in Washington as well as California, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Utah. Consumers who have purchased the bones are urged to dispose of them or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Salmonella can affect animals eating the product, and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated items.
