Has Berkley Jensen Ever Been Recalled?
Yes — twice, according to our research. In September 2019, certain packs of Berkley Jensen brand pig ear dog treats were recalled because they were potentially contaminated with salmonella bacteria.
Back in March 2007, Berkley & Jensen recalled limited numbers of pig ears treats for the same reason: possible salmonella.
Full details of both recalls appear below.
