The product comes in a clear plastic bag containing 6 bully sticks marked with bar code number 647263899189.

No illnesses have been reported to date in animals or humans in connection with this problem, according to the company. Kasel stopped production and distribution of the product while FDA and the company continue investigating as to the source of the contamination.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella may experience…

  • nausea

  • diarrhea or bloody diarrhea
  • abdominal cramping
  • fever

Although rare, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments including…

  • arterial infections
  • endocarditis (inflammation of the lining of the heart)
  • arthritis
  • muscle pain
  • eye irritation
  • urinary tract symptoms

If you have any of these signs after having contact with this product, contact your doctor immediately.

Pets with Salmonella infections may show…

  • lethargy
  • diarrhea or bloody diarrhea
  • fever

Some pets may only experience a decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has had any of the affected products or is experiencing any of these symptoms, immediately contact your veterinarian.
