WASHINGTON -- Six types of dog and cat treats marketed by TW
Enterprises of Ferndale, Wash., were recalled Wednesday after reports
of infections in humans of an illness called "Salmonella Thompson."

The items were distributed in the United States and Canada under the
TW Enterprises and the Aron Pet Food names.

In a statement distributed by the federal Food and Drug
Administration, TW Enterprises says five cases of infection developed
among people who handled the pet treats -- three in Canada and two in
the United States.

The company said consumers should not feed the treats to their pets
but should instead dispose of them.

The organism can cause serious infections in small children, frail or
elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy
people may suffer only short-term symptoms, such as high fever,
severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, but
long-term complications can include arthritis.

The company identified the recalled products as:

Salmon Snackers 100% Salmon Treats for Dogs; package size 50 grams;
UPC code 8 33234 00100 6.
Salmon Snackers 100% Salmon Treats for Cats; package size 50 grams;
UPC code 8 33234 00101 3.

UPC code 8 33234 00104 4.

UPC code 8 33234 00103 7.

grams; UPC code 7 76626 53898 1.

I never liked that company anyway. I always had an intuition that something was wrong with that company but I could not put my finger on it.

Thanks for posting the info. I don't think I've seen those treats in the stores I visit, but I will keep an eye out.
