Pet food company pulls dog treats with unapproved antibiotic from the shelves

ABC News¬†(1/31, Galli) reports on its website that “another major pet food company has pulled dog treats that use Chinese chicken from shelves after finding residue of illegal antibiotics. Hartz Mountain, which manufactures Hartz Chicken Chews and Hartz Oinkies Pig Skin Twists wrapped with Chicken, has pulled both products off the market, saying they contain trace amounts of an antibiotic not approved for use in the U.S.” According to the ABC News website, “earlier this month, Del Monte and Nestle Purina voluntarily pulled chicken jerky pet treats made in China off the market after the New York State Department of Agriculture found possible contamination by an antibiotic illegal in the U.S. in Del Monte’s Milo’s Kitchen products and in Nestle Purina’s Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch treats.”
