The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced a recall of dog treats on Jan. 15. Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats by Milo’s Kitchen were nationally recalled because the treats may contain residual antibodies.
Poultry farms normally give chickens antibiotics to keep them healthy and disease free. While it is accepted as normal practice to do so, it is unapproved to have antibodies to be present in any final food product slated for retail sale.
The New York State’s Department of Agriculture (USDA) detected trace amounts of the antibodies in several lots of the canine treats.
Retailers have been notified by Milo’s Kitchen to remove all of the affected food products off shelves.
Consumers should dispose of the affected dog treats and may request a refund.
