DOG CHEW RECALL – Redbarn, Chewy Louie, Good Lovin’ and Dentley’s


I’m always so scared of my furry friends eating the wrong thing. I really hate when recalls happen and it stinks that you have to pay so much attention to the types of treats you’re buying.

Redbarn Pet Products initially issued a voluntary recall of a single type of treats. This recall is now being expanded to include additional treats.

Although no injuries, illnesses, or complaints have yet been received, Redbarn Pet Products, LLC has expanded its voluntary dog chew recall to include multiple brands of their dog chews.

Why the Recall

Redbarn Pet Products is erring on the side of caution and expanding their voluntary recall to include all treats made from raw materials provided by a single supplier.

The initial recall issued on February 7, 2021, included a single lot of product after a retail sample collected by the Colorado Department of Agriculture tested positive for Salmonella.

The recall now includes all lots of treats manufactured with raw material provided by the same supplier, as they all have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.  This decision was made by Redbarn Pet Products after an additional lot of raw material from the supplier came back positive for Salmonella when tested by the FDA.

What Is Included in the Recall

This single supplier’s raw materials were used to produce Chewy Louie, Redbarn, Good Lovin’, and Dentley’s brand products with best-by dates ending with the letters BC.

Included here is a list of products affected by the recall (list obtained from Redbarninc.com).

  • Salmonella

Salmonella is a very common bacteria that is found in the intestines of animals. When food is not handled properly it can become contaminated with Salmonella. If you handle contaminated food you can then spread that bacteria by touching other things with your contaminated hands.

If your dog has eaten the potentially contaminated chews and is exhibiting any of these symptoms be sure to call your veterinarian! Some animals eating the contaminated treats won’t exhibit symptoms but could still infect other animals or humans, so keep an eye on your dog’s furry and human friends as well.

If you have any of the affected lots of chews in your home you should also monitor yourself and others for:
