NH dog treats recalled after people sickened

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire company is recalling a line of dog treats after three dozen people became sick.

The state public health department says Kritter’s Kitchen Kreations of Loudon is voluntarily recalling its Joey’s Jerky chicken jerky for pets due to possible Salmonella risk.

Salmonella is a bacterium that causes fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Officials say while it’s uncommon for pet food and treats to be contaminated with Salmonella, the outbreak highlights the need for pet owners to wash their hands after handling the items.

The pet treats were sold at: America’s Pet in Hudson, Blue Seal in Bow, K9 Kaos in Dover, Osborne’s Agway and Sandy’s Pet Food Center in Concord, and The Yellow Dogs Barn in Barrington.

Company officials did not immediately return a call Tuesday.
