Target Store Brand Dog Treats Recalled

Target store brand, Boots and Barkley, has been voluntarily “recalled” for salmonella contamination on September 21, 2012. The American Beef Bully Sticks were manufactured by the Denver-based Kasel Associated Industries.

The following lots are being recalled: BESTBY20APR2014DEN, BESTBY01JUN2014DEN, BESTBY23JUN2014DEN, and BESTBY23SEP2014DEN and were all sold between April 2012 and September 2012.
