FDA Finds Salmonella in Nature’s Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats

October 5, 2012

FDA investigators found Salmonella bacteria in Nature’s Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats at Kasel Associated Industries of Denver, CO, during a routine sampling inspection. Once notified of the results, the company recalled and ceased distribution of its product.

This sampling and recall is unrelated to jerky pet treats from China that are associated with reports of illness in dogs and cats. Information on that FDA investigation can be found online at

No other Kasel Associated Industries products are included in the recall of Nature’s Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats.

FDA is concerned about any food found to contain Salmonella and will post information for the public on any new bacterial outbreak that has the potential to sicken animals and humans who handle potentially contaminated products. FDA continues to caution individuals to thoroughly wash their hands after having contact with pet products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella may have some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Consumers exhibiting these symptoms should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has any of these signs, please contact your veterinarian.

Additional information on this recall can be found in the company’s recall announcement:
