LANSING – The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) today issued a consumer advisory for pig ears sold in bulk at retailers statewide because the pet treats have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Consumers who have purchased bulk pig ear products may wish to avoid giving them to their pets and consider discarding them.
