Joey’s Jerky Treats Is Allegedly Tied to 21 Salmonella Cases

Twenty-one people in New Hampshire have fallen sick due to Salmonella, and health officials are pointing to Joey’s Jerky chicken jerky treats.

Yes, the treats are made for dogs, but the infection can hit humans who touch the treats.

“While uncommon, pet food and treats can sometimes be contaminated with Salmonella, which is why it is so important for pet owners to wash their hands after handling pet food and treats,” said Dr. José Montero, director of public health at DHHS.
