NEW: More dog treats recalled
Boots & Barkley Roasted American Pig Ears and Boots & Barkley American Variety Pack Dog Treats sold nationwide in Target stores in August have been voluntarily recalled because they may be contaminated with salmonella, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Salmonella can sicken animals that eat these products, and humans are at risk for salmonella poisoning from handling contaminated pet products.
The roasted pig-ears product comes in a clear plastic bag containing 12 pig ears marked with UPC bar code 647263899158, according to the FDA. The variety pack product also comes in a clear 32-ounce plastic bag and is marked with UPC bar code 490830400086.
Kasel Industries, of Denver, is recalling lot number BESTBY 13SEP2014DEN for both products.

Kasel, which makes Nature's Deli, also removed "bully treats" from the market last month because of possible salmonella contamination.
