According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), tests conducted by the company indicated the products might have a low level of thiamine (Vitamin B1).

The FDA has also announced that Diggin' Your Dog has recalled one lot of Strippin' Chicks Pet Treats because of possible contamination with salmonella bacteria. The product has only been distributed to Colorado and Nevada.
The lot being withdrawn includes five-ounce bags, and bears a lot code of 250322 and a use by date of 2-23-14.
Last week, the FDA announced that Steve's Real Food of Murray, Utah, recalled its 5 lb. bags of Turducken Canine Diet - 8oz. Patties because of possible salmonella contamination.
Salmonella can sicken animals that eat these products, and humans are at risk for salmonella poisoning from handling contaminated pet products.
