Dog, Cat Treats Recalled After Humans Infected

POSTED: 7:30 am EDT June 9, 2005

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:

Actually I had just looked at them the other day at Petco and thought it was a good healthy idea - but did not buy them as they were dryed so hard I wasn't sure my cat could crunch it or they'd just swallow it... Sooooo. Very glad you posted this and i didn't buy it! Debbie
