Dog Treat Recall
Heads up - or is that tails up? - for dog owners.
Milo's Kitchen is voluntarily recalling their Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers dog treats. Apparently, trace amounts of residual antibiotics were found in several lots of the jerky, so the NY Department of Agriculture and FDA decided to recall the treats.
While antibiotics are fairly standard to keep chickens healthy in poultry production for both human and pet food, antibiotics in these treats are unapproved and should not be there.
"Pet safety and consumer confidence in our products are our top priorities," said Rob Leibowitz, general manager, Pet Products. "While there is no known health risk, the presence of even trace amounts of these antibiotics does not meet our high quality standards. Therefore, today we decided to recall both products and asked retailers to remove the products from their shelves.
If you have any of the treats in this recall, you can return the product to point of purchase for a full refund, or call 1-877-228-6493.
