Consumer Protection Assignment Boulder Dog Food Company is recalling 3-oz. bags of Chicken Sprinkles. The product many be contaminated with Salmonella. One complaint was received from a consumer who had contact with the product. The recall is limited to Chicken Sprinkles with a “Best By” date of “05/04/16”, Lot # “998” and a UPC Code of 899883001231. The product is packaged in a clear poly bag, with the UPC Code located in the lower right hand corner of the label on the front of the bag. The “Best By” date and Lot Number are on a label on the reverse side of the bag.

Consumers should be wary of purchasing macadamia nuts from this company due to salmonella contamination. I am sure that many carriers of this product will not be renewing their contract when the time arises in order to assure the well-being of their customers. Making the public aware of these issues is the best way to solve and move past the dilemma. A specialty dog food company is voluntarily recalling a frozen product distributed in four states over fears of possible salmonella contamination. The Food & Drug Administration said last week that California-based OC Raw Dog has recalled its Turkey & Produce Raw Frozen Canine Formulation. The recalled formulations were packaged into 6½-pound Doggie Dozen Patties and 5-pound Bulk Bags with sell-by dates of Oct. 8. The products were
