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. On July 6, 2022, the firm was notified by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services (NCDA & CS) that a sample they collected tested positive for Salmonella spp.
The recall, issued July 12, 2022, 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.
