    Six Types of Dog and Cat Treats Recalled

    WASHINGTON -- Six types of dog and cat treats marketed by T.W. Enterprises of Ferndale, Wash., and distributed in the United States and Canada under its name and the Aron Pet Food name were recalled Wednesday after reports of Salmonella Thompson infection in humans.

    Five cases of infection caused by the organism -- three in Canada and two in the United States -- developed among people who handled the pet treats, T.W. Enterprises said in a statement distributed by the federal Food and Drug Administration. Consumers should not feed the treats to their pets but should instead dispose of them in a safe manner, the company said.

    The organism can cause serious infections in small children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people may suffer only short-term symptoms, such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, but long-term complications can include arthritis.

    The company identified the recalled products as:

    * Salmon Snackers 100% Salmon Treats for Dogs; package size 50 grams; UPC code 8 33234 00100 6.

    * Salmon Snackers 100% Salmon Treats for Cats; package size 50 grams; UPC code 8 33234 00101 3.

    * Shrimp Snackers 100% Shrimp Treats for Cats; package size 28 grams; UPC code 8 33234 00104 4.

    * Shrimp Snackers 100% Shrimp Treats for Dogs; package size 28 grams; UPC code 8 33234 00103 7.

    * Healthy K9 Beef Jerkey 100% Natural Dog Treats; package size 70 grams; UPC code 7 76626 53898 1.

    * Healthy K9 Beef Heart 100% Natural Dog Treats; package size 70 grams; UPC code 7 76626 53897 4. Aron Pet Food of Abbotsford, British Columbia, imported raw materials from T.W. Enterprises into Canada for use in products that were sold there under the Aron Pet Food label. That firm is also conducting a recall of these products, the statement said.
