Jones Natural Chews Company recalled 245 boxes of its Woofers beef patties on March 6, 2013. The reason the Rockford, Illinois, company recalled the product was due to potential Salmonella contamination.
Shipped to retailers in the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin, the products were distributed between November 1 and November 12, 2012. The potential Salmonella contamination was revealed when the Colorado Department of Agriculture Feed Program found Salmonella within a sample of the product.
