Just wanted to make all my readers aware!

Texas Taffy pet treat (ITEM # 27077, UPC # 02280827077, All Lots up to and including 10364) because they have the potential to be contaminated withSalmonella. Merrick Pet Care has made the decision to recall all Jr. Texas Taffy pet treats in the abundance of caution. Salmonella can affect animals and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products.

People handling the treats can become infected withSalmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the chews or any surfaces exposed to these products. Consumers should dispose of these products in a safe manner by securing them in a covered trash receptacle.

  • Yep…and that’s Darby’s fave treat…but no longer! It’s the second recall from Merrick in a short time so I don’t think we’ll take a chance on them which is sad because we buy treats from the USA only. Well…off to place an order with Kona’s Chips!
