Consumer: Dog treat recall, Kindle refunds

October 15, 2012

We begin with that recall of dog treats.

Nature's Recipe is recalling the treats because they could be contaminated with salmonella. That could not only affect dogs that eat the treats but their owners who handle the contaminated products.

Nature's Recipe is voluntarily recalling some of its "oven baked biscuits" with Real Chicken." They were manufactured at its Kansas plant.

Company officials say while no illnesses have been reported, pet owners should monitor themselves and their dogs for signs and problems. They should also throw the treats away immediately.

Again, these are Oven Baked Biscuits with Real Chicken. They were sold in 19 ounce stand-up re-sealable pouches with a Best if Used By date of October 11, 2013 or October 12, 2013.

Lot numbers include: 2199TP or 2200TP and a UPC Code of 30521 51549.

In other consumer news, if you have a Kindle e-reader, you could have a little money coming your way.

According to Amazon, if a judge approves a pending legal settlement, you'll get refunds on past e-books purchases and see e-book prices drop.

Refunds on past purchases are expected to be between 30 cents and a $1.32 for e-books bought between April 2010 and May 2012.

The books must have been published by three publishers who've agreed to settle a lawsuit that accuses them of inflating e-book prices.

The refunds will be applied automatically to the accounts of eligible customers. Customers can use the refunds to buy Kindle books or print books or request a check.
