Several brands of dog treats have been recalled again. This time the recall is due to an antibiotic residue being found on the dog food treats.
According to reports by Dog Food Advisor, the following dog food treats are on the recall list:
Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats.
Nestle Purina is recalling Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch Dog treats.
Milo’s can be contacted at 877-228-6493. Nestle Purina can be contacted at 800-982-0704.
The antibiotic residue found in the recalled dog treats was not approved for use in the United States. However, the antibiotic is used in China and certain parts of Europe. Many dog food treats are made in China.
Pet owners may want to consider making their own dog treats to avoid such issues. While many treats for dogs are made out of the country, it might be hard to say those made in the states would always be safe.
