Nestle and DelMonte Recall Dog Treats

Nestle Purina Petcare Company and DelMonte announced they are recalling several brands of their dog treats because they contain residues of an undisclosed antibiotic. The New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets conducted the tested that revealed the presence of the drug residue.

Important RecallNestle is pulling Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats from the market. The treats, which are chicken jerky products, were made in China, where the antibiotic is approved for use. The company states that the treats are “safe to feed to pets” because the antibiotic residue is very small, but are still recalling the treats.

DelMonte is removing Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats. That company says that the antibiotic presence in the treats means the products do not meet their internal standards.

Many consumer complaints to the FDA have been made about these brands of treats. Government officials have been investigating thousands of reports of pet illnesses and hundreds of pet deaths that may be associated with jerky treats. The FDA inspected five plants in China in March and April 2012; at that time, China refused to let the FDA test samples of the products unless the tests were conducted in Chinese labs. The FDA states that these treats are “not necessary for a balanced diet”.

    ALL COMPANIES SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO PUT ON THEIR PACKAGING LABELS WHERE ALL INGREDIENTS COME FROM…DEL MONTE CANINE CARRY OUTS (BACON & CHEESE FLAVOR) DOES NOT SAY WHERE THE PRODUCT IS MANUFACTERED……AS DO MANY OTHER PRODUCTS….I WILL NOT BUY ANYTHING, INCLUDING CLOTHES, ETC, IF I FIND OUT IT COMES FROM CHINA IN ANY FORM….I LOVE AMERICA…LETS KEEP OUR PEOPLE WORKING HERE AND USING GOOD OLD AMERICAN MATERIALS AND PRODUCTS….

    I know first hand that those treats were poisoning my chompers and if I didn’t pay such close to my pup and what he eats and how he feels afterwards I would of probably killed him.. I’m so glad they recalled these and I hope they make sure that this never happens again.. Honestly you should make sure they are taking off the shelves in stores because I have still seen them on shelves as we speak everywhere I go!!!
