DEERFIELD, FL (KFVS) -

If you buy treats for your pet, you need to check your packages.

Salix Animal Health, LLC has voluntarily recalled one lot of its “Good ‘n’ Fun Beefhide Chicken Sticks” because it may have been contaminated with salmonella.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, the company announced that recall on September 30th.

The salmonella can affect both the animals eating the product and humans handling contaminated products.

Pets with salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets may only have a decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. If your pet has eaten the Beefhide Chicken Sticks, you should contact your veterinarian.

The recalled treats were distributed to Dollar General and Dollar Tree retail stores.

The affected treats were packaged in a 2.8 ounce bag stamped on the back side with lot number AO15010 and with an expiration date of 03/2018. The UPC code is 0 91093 82247 1.

There have been no pet or consumer illnesses reported so far.

If you have the product, you should throw it away or return it to the store you bought it for a full refund.

For more information, you can contact Salix Animal Health’s consumer affairs team at 1-800-338-4896.
