No illnesses, injuries or complaints have been reported.

The possible Salmonella contamination was due to an ingredient that was supplied to Loving Pets from a USA based supplier, and was discovered by Loving Pets’ internal quality assurance team. It was then identified through the company’s standard quality control testing procedures and internal food safety program.

Consumers may return any bag of treats with any of these aforementioned lot numbers to the retailer where the product was originally purchased. For additional information, please visit www.LovingPetsProducts.com or call 866-599-PETS (7387).
