Recall by Hartz Mountain opens eyes

September 3, 2010 Hartz Mountain recalled one of its 2000 pet products.  Hartz Naturals Real Beef Treats for Dogs was voluntarily recalling one specific lot because of concerns that one or more bags could be potentially contaminated with Salmonella.  FDA issued this alert to pet owners on their website http://www.fda.gov informing consumers of the possibility of the Salmonella organism being present within  Lot # BZ0969101E UPC number 32700-11519.

Salmonella could create symptoms in dogs and humans that include:

1.  Fever

2.  Diarrhea

3.  Abdominal pain

4.  Nausea

Recommendations for humans with these symptoms is to seek medical attention.  Dogs exhibiting any of these signs should be taken to the veterinarian.

Hartz Mountain is recalling 74, 700 8 ounce bags of Hartz  Naturals Real Beef Treats for dogs.  Through regular testing at the origination point there was not any detection of the presence of Salmonella in any packages.  It was however;  random testing by the FDA  that indicated the presence of Salmonella

Hartz asks consumers to discontinue giving this product to their pets and discard of it in a proper manner.  All concerns or questions will be answered anytime including how to obtain reimbursement for the purchased product.

It is interesting to know Hartz was originally owned and operated by a German Immigrant, Max Stern in 1932.  After 75 years making and distributing pet supplies Hartz is now owned by Japan’s general trading giant Sumitomo.  Eugeneites might have their eyes opened to learn the recalled Hartz Naturals Real Beef Treats for dogs item was imported from a Brazilian Supplier in Bertin S. A. and shipped to suppliers in the United States and Canada.
