Sale of Pig Ear Dog Chews Should End


Both the U.S. FDA and the CDC are recommending that pig-ear dog chews should be withdrawn from the market due to an extensive outbreak of salmonellosis reported from 33 states involving 127 diagnosed cases. Trace-back studies and sampling performed in plants have revealed extensive contamination of the product. This contributes to intestinal colonization and shedding of Salmonella by dogs with consequential exposure of family members.

On July 3rd, Lennox International of Edison, NJ recalled pig ear pet treats distributed from November 1st 2018 through July 2019.

Dog chews have been implicated in health problems experienced by pets in past months including as yet undiagnosed mortality attributed to dried-meat treats imported from China.
