Warnings We Never Expected to See (and Perhaps Never Wanted to See)

Sue Lemcke sent this particular alert from a recent warning from the FDA’s Homeland Security Page.

“The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today warned consumers not to use American Bullie A.B. Bull Pizzle Puppy Chews and Dog Chews manufactured and distributed by T.W. Enterprises, Ferndale, WA, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, which can cause serious infections in dogs and cats, and, if there is cross contamination, in people, especially children, the aged, and people with compromised immune systems. Consumers who have the pet treats manufactured or distributed by T.W. Enterprises listed below should not feed them to their pets, but instead dispose of them in a safe manner (e.g., in a securely covered trash receptacle).”

Sue raised the reasonable question about whether a pizzle is what it sounds like.

Wikipedia provides an answer, more than you ever wanted to know.

Jim Ryan added, “I guess that explains the cocky expression a dog gets when gnawing on
a pizzle!”
