Follow-up Comment #2:

Eric is right.   Backslash is the quoting character for xargs.   From the
first paragraph of the manual page:

xargs reads items from the standard input, delimited by blanks  which can be
protected with double or single quotes or a backslash) or newlines, and
executes the command (default is /bin/echo) one or more times with any
initial-arguments followed by items read from standard input.
