Breeder's Choice Active Care Biscuits dog treats recalled for mold

Recall affects 24-ounce packages of the Active Care Biscuits-Healthy Dog Treats that were exposed to excess moisture

Central Garden & Pet's Breeder’s Choice company has issued a recall for a single batch of Active Care Biscuits-Healthy Dog Treats after mold was discovered in one of the lots of dog treats.

The recalled Active Care Biscuits-Healthy Dog Treats are sold in 24-ounce packages with product code/SKU BCP-080, UPC code 0130104895 and best-before code 19/Dec/2013. According to the manufacturer, the mold occurred because of varying dryer temperature settings for drying dog dog biscuits, which exposed the recalled product to excess moisture.

The company says the problem has been fixed, and it has not received any reports of human or pet illness associated with the recalled treats. Pet owners who fed the treats to their pets should watch for common symptoms of mold exposure, such as gastrointestinal issues like loose stool.
