Earlier this month, the Food and Drug Administration as well as the Center for Disease Control and
Prevention issued an investigation into a pig ear pet treat contamination. The FDA and CDC advise
pet owners to securely discard of any pig ear treats, and thoroughly disinfect any possible surfaces
that may have had contact with a pig ear treat.
We want to keep you updated on any news regarding products sold here at CityVet that you might see
mentioned on various news outlets. Pet Supplies Plus and Lennox Intl. Inc. are recalling bulk pig
ears and individually wrapped ears in 30 states, due to a salmonella outbreak that is potentially
tied to the products. Although our products were not included in the recall, CityVet has decided
to pull pig ear products off our shelves.
If you recently purchased any pig ear treats and are concerned, you may return pig ears purchased
at your CityVet location for full credit.
Signs that your pet may be suffering from a Salmonella infection (also called salmonellosis) include
diarrhea (sometimes with blood), vomiting, and lethargy. In humans, diarrhea, stomach cramps, and
fever are typical symptoms of salmonellosis.
If you suspect that your pet may have salmonella, contact your vet.
