Popular dog treat and toy maker Nylabone has issued a recall for its puppy chews over a possible Salmonella risk.
According to a news release, the recall covers one lot of the 1.69-ounce Puppy Starter Kit marked with "Lot #21935, UPC 0-18214-81291-3" and an expiration date of March 22, 2018. Routine testing "revealed the presence of Salmonella" in that lot, which was distributed nationwide and in Canada. Both pets and humans handling the product are at risk, the company said.

No illnesses have been reported.
