Pet food company expanding dog treat recall to include DE

A Georgia-based dog food company has expanded a recall involving its teriyaki dog treats over salmonella concerns.

Officials from Bailey's Choice say a recall of the company's Teriyaki Chicken Treats has expanded to include Delaware, Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

The company first issued a recall of several varieties of chicken treats last week after the Georgia Department of Agriculture found salmonella in the products during routine testing.

In a statement Tuesday, company spokesman Roger Thomas said Bailey's Choice is working with the state Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug administration to remove the pet treats from stores.

Thomas says the company has repaired a digital thermostat that caused a dehydrator used to maintain proper temperatures to malfunction.
