Stormberg Foods is recalling a collection of chicken snacks for dogs after North Carolina regulators collected a sample of the treats that tested positive for salmonella.

The recall, issued Tuesday, includes: Beg & Barker Chicken Breast Strips; Billo's Best Friend Chicken Breast Strips; and Green Coast Pets Chicken Crisps. The dog snacks were manufactured in North Carolina before they were shipped to warehouses in California, Minnesota, North Carolina, and Rhode Island from June 8–22, Stormberg says. From there, the food was sent to retailers and customers across the country.

The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services collected the sample that tested positive for salmonella, but no human or pet illnesses have been linked to the treats, according to the company.

Salmonella poisoning can affect both us and our pets, which is why you should wash your hands after handling any pet food. In dogs, salmonella poisoning can cause lethargy, diarrhea (sometimes bloody), vomiting, fever, lack of appetite, and abdominal pain. Dogs, whether or not they've showing signs, can also spread the bacteria to other animals, including humans.
