Pet Food Recall: Loving Pets Dog Treats Recall

The Loving Pets brand has issued a voluntary recall of its Loving Pets Barksters and Loving Pets Puffsters Snack Chips treats due to a potential Salmonella contamination in a single finished ingredient that was supplied through a U.S.-based company. This possible contamination was discovered by Loving Pets’ internal quality assurance team and was identified through the company’s standard quality control testing procedures and internal food safety program. No illnesses, injuries or complaints have been reported.

Loving Pets produces its treats in small batches, in order to offer the highest quality and control in safety. Owing to this business model, Loving Pets took extra caution and recalled a wider range of lot numbers than those with the suspected contamination to ensure that only the best quality products are available on the market.
