Nestle Purina PetCare company and its wholly owned sunsidiary Waggin' Train, LLC announced today that it is voluntarily withdrawing its Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand jerky dog treats. These treats, made in China, have been under fire for several years, with consumer complaints to the FDA and to pet advocates such as The Truth About Pet Food website by Sue Thixton.
What prompted this voluntary recall was a New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets sampling which found trace amounts of antibiotic residue in the Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek Ranch chicken jerky products. These antibiotics, while approved for use in other countries, is not approved for use in the United States. While the company might have only chosen to remove the products in the New York market, they responsibly chose to withdraw the product nationwide.
The experts at Nestle Purina state that there is no health or safety risk to your pets. No illnesses have been reported related to the antibiotics found in the products. No other Purina treats or pet food products are affected by this recall.
For product refund or more information, contact the Nestle Purina Office of Consumer affairs at 1 (800) 982-0704 or go to the website at www.waggintrainbrand.com .
