Chicken Jerky Treats Recall! Nestle Purina, Milo’s Kitchen

by Mary Haight on January 9, 2013

Chicken Jerky Treats Recall – Two companies have recalled their brands so far:

  1. Nestle Purina Petcare Company brands Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch
  2. Milo’s Kitchen brands Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers Home-Style Dog Treats

The reason stated by both companies for this recall has to do with unapproved antibiotics in trace amounts found in the products. This from Nestle Purina:

The Company is taking this action after learning this week that the New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets (NYSDAM) found trace amounts of antibiotic residue in samples of Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch chicken jerky products. These antibiotics are approved for use in poultry in China and other major countries, including European Union member states, but are not among those approved in the U.S. Antibiotics are commonly used globally, including in the United States, when raising animals fit for human consumption.”

Nestle Purina and Milo’s Kitchen announcement also state this finding does not present a health threat to dogs, but because of their high standards they are pulling products off the shelves.

Contact Nestle: For product refund or more information call Office of Consumer Affairs at 1-800-982-0704 or go to www.waggintrainbrand.com.
