Redbarn Expands Recall of Dog Treats for Salmonella Contamination, Four Brands Effected

Redbarn Pet Products is expanding an earlier recall to include selected Redbard, Chewy Louie, Dentley’s and Good Lovin’ dog treats because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Redbarn’s recall last month was initiated after the Colorado Department of Agriculture found that one of their treats tested positive for Salmonella. Redbarn is expanding the previous recall after the FDA tested additional products and found they also tested positive for Salmonella.


The recall is for certain lots of Redbarn, Chewy Louie, Dentley’s and Good Lovin’ bully stick treats for dogs. The treats were distributed nationwide between March 2017 through February 2018. The recalled products all have best by dates ending with the code “BC.”

Salmonella can affect animals eating the products, and there is a risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may become lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.


If you have any questions or concerns contact Redbarn by email at or by phone at 1-800-775-3849, M-F, 8 am-5 pm PST.


If you believe your pet has become ill from consuming a pet food, please provide the FDA with valuable information by reporting it electronically through their Safety Reporting Portal or call your local FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator.

If you and your veterinarian think a pet food or treat is the source of a problem – save it – because your state agricultural or veterinary diagnostic lab may want to do testing. If you need more help, find out how to report a pet food complaint to the FDA.
