Ocoee Pet Sitter Warns: Dog Treat Recall

Big Paw Pet Care

Another dog food recall

It what seems to be a never-ending cycle of warnings, yet another dog food company has issued a voluntary recall of their dog treats. We are warning all of our pet sitting clients and Central Florida pet owners of the alert.

Dogswell has recalled pet treats which are sold throughout Central Florida. Their press release states:

[box]During routine testing of our products, the New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets (NYSDAM) discovered that a sample of our Dogswell Happy Hips Chicken Breast Jerky contained trace amounts of an antibiotic residue that has not been approved for use in the United States. [/box]

The press release goes on to say that only products labeled Chicken Breast and Duck Breast jerky under the Breathies, Happy Heart, Happy Hips, Mellow Mut, Shape Up, Veggie Life, Vitality, and Vitakitty brands that are labeled with a “Best Before” date of January 28th, 2015 or any earlier date” are part of this recall.

Dogswell sells products manufactured in the US however some of their treats are manufactured in China. China has been a common theme in many pet food recalls.

It’s important to note that this company has chosen to report this as a “withdrawal” rather than a “recall”. Why is that important you ask? Watch our blog later this week for more information on the ways pet food companies believe saving face is more important than reporting facts to their consumers.
