Earlier this month, the Food and Drug Administration as well as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention issued an investigation into a pig ear pet treat contamination. The FDA and CDC advise pet owners to securely discard of any pig ear treats, and thoroughly disinfect any possible surfaces that may have had contact with a pig ear treat.
We want to keep you updated on any news regarding products sold here at CityVet that you might see mentioned on various news outlets. Pet Supplies Plus and Lennox Intl. Inc. are recalling bulk pig ears and individually wrapped ears in 30 states, due to a salmonella outbreak that is potentially tied to the products. Although our products were not included in the recall, CityVet has decided to pull pig ear products off our shelves.
If you recently purchased any pig ear treats and are concerned, you may return pig ears purchased at your CityVet location for full credit.
Signs that your pet may be suffering from a Salmonella infection (also called salmonellosis) include diarrhea (sometimes with blood), vomiting, and lethargy. In humans, diarrhea, stomach cramps, and fever are typical symptoms of salmonellosis.
If you suspect that your pet may have salmonella, contact your vet.
