A New Jersey company is recalling 75,000 bands of dog treats because of possible salmonella contamination, the company announced today.

Hartz Mountain Corp. of Secaucus, N.J. issued the recall on 8 oz. bags of Hartz Naturals Real Beef Treats for Dogs. 

The bags were imported from a supplier in Brazil and have been distributed around the U.S. There have been no reports of illness in animals or humans, Hartz said.

Salmonella is a food-borne illness that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.

Consumers with questions can contact Hartz at 1-800-275-1414.
