Kaytee Recalls Bird Treats and Greens
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received information regarding the recall of bird treats and greens items due to possible contamination of Salmonella from parsley flake ingredients supplied to Kaytee by Specialty Commodities, Inc., an outside supplier to Kaytee.

Pet owners should thoroughly wash their hands after having contact with these products and clean any surfaces that were exposed. Healthy persons exposed to Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever.
