Wow, another RECALL from Merrick.  Wonder what's up with them?  We used to eat Merrick products before they stareted recalling stuff. If you "recall", Merrick recalled another of its dog treats last year, after a sample tested positive for salmonella.

Crazy world,

By-the-way ... Jr. Texas Taffy dog treats are sold nationwide in stores, including Petco and Agway
