BOSTON — On Feb. 16, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) advised consumers to dispose all Dog Gone Dog Treats after three cases of Salmonella. The cases, which include two adults and one child, are a result of handling the treats. An open bag and several unopened bags of the treats purchased last week all tested positive for Salmonella.
Made in Georgetown, Mass., the dehydrated treats are formulated with chicken chips, beef liver and sweet potato chips. The treats are currently sold at Essex County Co-Op in Topsfield, New England Dog Biscuit Company in Salem, Gimme Chews & More in Haverhill and Animal Krackers in Gloucester.
All stores selling the treats have been instructed to remove any existing treats from shelves with no additional treats being produced.
