  • Joey's Jerky chicken jerky treats being recalled for possible Salmonella contamination

    Release Date: Wednesday, September 11 , 2013

    The New Hampshire, USA, Department of Health and Human Services announced a voluntary recall of Joey's Jerky chicken jerky treats due to possible Salmonella  contamination. Joey's Jerky is produced in New Hampshire by Kritter's Kitchen Kreations LLC.

    America's Pet in Hudson
    Blue Seal in Bow
