Two different companies are recalling their pig ear dog treats over possible salmonella contamination, according to the FDA.
Blackman Industries, Inc. of Kansas City, Kan, is recalling all PrimeTime brand 2 ct. and 5 ct. Premium Pig Ears and all KC Beefhide brand 20 ct. Premium Pig Ears because they have the potential to be contaminated.
The product was distributed between Jan. 4, 2011 and April 29, 2011.
Boss Pet Products, Inc. also announced that it is recalling its Diggers Natural Treat Pig Ear pet treats because the products also have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.
The company was notified by one of its suppliers, Keys Manufacturing Company, Inc., that a batch of Keys’ pig ear treats tested positive for Salmonella. Keys Manufacturing has initiated a voluntary product recall in cooperation with the FDA and has identified several shipments of potentially affected products which Boss Pet shipped out under its Diggers brand in November, 2010 through April, 2011.
