Nylabone® Products recalled one lot of its Puppy Starter Kit dog chews on April 22, 2015. The recall was prompted after routine testing detected the presence of Salmonella in the product.

When pet owners try to determine if they have bought any of the recalled product, they should look on the back of the packaging for the following lot and “best by” date:

  • 1.69-oz packages  of Nylabone® Puppy Starter Kit dog chew with lot number 21935 and a “best by” date of 3/22/18. Additionally, the packaging has UPC code 0-18214-81291-3.

When trying to determine if pets have become infected with Salmonella bacteria, look for symptoms such as lethargy and loss of appetite.

Medical attention should be sought for any pet owners or pets who have become infected by Salmonella.

Any pet owners who purchased the recalled product should return them to the place of purchase.
