Pet product company recalls nearly 75,000 bags of dog treats

A leading pet product company has issued a voluntary recall of nearly 75,000 bags of dog treats due to salmonella concerns, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The move by Hartz Mountain Corp. came after random sample testing by the FDA indicated the presence of salmonella organisms in one or more 8-ounce bags of Hartz Naturals Real Beef Treats for Dogs.

    That is terrible! I'm very glad I don't feed my dog those treats! I hope nobody's dog got sick!

    Are criminal charges pending for those who may have caused this? There is no reason why our best friends should get sick!

    Look people, anyone that uses Hartz Mountain products today should really have their head examined. Do a little research on all the problems they've had thru the years. Most everything made in China. Your pets deserve better!

    Now if we could just get irrespponsible pet owners recalled. You know them. They have several pets cooped up in a tiny apartment. Their dogs never get walked. Never brushed. And if their pet bites or scratches or pecks even a small child, it's OK by them.. Their kitty litter boxes are placed in unusual places...always full. Their backyards are covered in doggy poop. I'm sure you all have met these sort of animalists. no?
