(WIAT) – Pet Owners you may want to check your pet treats! Pet Supplies Plus is recalling pig ear treats sold in bulk at its stores due to the potential of salmonella contamination.
The bulk pig ears were stocked in open bins. Prepackaged branded pig ears are not included in the recall.
The company said a pig ear tested positive for salmonella at one of its Michigan stores, so it pulled the product from all stores and stopped shipping it.
People who bought bulk pig ears from Pet Supplies Plus should throw them away.
Salmonella can affect animals that eat the products, and there is a risk to people who handle contaminated products and don’t wash their hands.
Pet Supplies Plus has stores in Birmingham, Tuscaloosa and Mobile.
