A Message From Redbarn President, Jeff Sutherland
“On 2/5/2018, we were notified by the Colorado Department of Agriculture that a single sample collected from a retail location detected Salmonella.
“At Redbarn, we test every product lot before it leaves our manufacturing plant. This lot code, expiry date 112120ABC, was tested both at our Redbarn lab and by a third-party testing facility. Those tests were negative for Salmonella or pathogens.
“Despite not being able to replicate these test results or receiving any negative reports from customers regarding these chews, we feel the best course of action is to recall this lot code of the product and keep our customers safe”.
“In issuing this voluntary recall in conjunction with the FDA, we are standing by our core values of quality and integrity.
“At Redbarn, we do the right thing for our customers.
“That means that we hold ourselves to the highest safety and quality assurance standards and take all precautions to prevent situations like a recall from happening.
“Family-owned Redbarn takes the safety of our product, pets, and customers as a number one concern.
“Redbarn employs an extensive Quality Assurance team that run over 400 safety tests on their products every week.
“Products like the 7-inch bully sticks are tested multiple times, for bacteria like Salmonella, coliforms and enteros.
“A product is declared safe to ship only after it tests negatively for these bacteria and other pathogens.”
