Milo's Kitchen is recalling Chicken Grillers and Chicken Jerky dog treats.
Milo’s Kitchen is voluntarily recalling its Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats from retailers in the US. The New York, USA, Department of Agriculture notified Milo's Kitchen and the US Food and Drug Administration that several lots of the Chicken Jerky dog treats were found to contain trace amounts of residual antibiotics.
The company is recalling both its Milo's Kitchen Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers dog treats because they are both sourced from the same chicken suppliers. The company says that although the use of antibiotics to keep chickens healthy and disease-free while raising them is standard practice in poultry production for both human and petfood, the antibiotics found in the products were unapproved and should not be present in the final food product.
According to Milo's Kitchen, part of the company's safety testing program involves testing for a range of substances commonly used to ensure the health of chickens, but it did not test for all of the specific antibiotics found by the New York Department of Agriculture.
“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."
Leibowitz said that consumers who discard the treats will receive a full refund. Consumers with questions about the Milo's Kitchen recall can get further information by calling +1.877.228.6493.
