Major Dog Treat Recall
Yesterday the J.M. Smucker Company announced a limited, voluntary dog treat recall of specific lots of two varieties of Milo’s Kitchen® dog treats because they potentially contain elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone.
Both items were distributed nationally.
The impacted production includes the following items and lots:
Dogs that consume high levels of beef thyroid hormone may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness. These symptoms could resolve themselves when a dog stops eating high levels of this hormone.
However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or labored breathing. Should these symptoms occur, pet owners should contact their veterinarian immediately.
Smucker initiated the voluntary recall of the limited, impacted production after the FDA informed the company of three illness reports.
Consumers who have purchased the specific lots of product listed above should stop feeding it to their dogs.
If consumers have questions or would like to receive a refund or coupon for replacement product, they should call 1-888-569-6767, Monday through Friday, between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM EST or email by completing this form.
No other Milo’s Kitchen® dog treats, or any other product manufactured by The J.M. Smucker Company, are part of the recall.
The voluntary recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
