Hartz Recalls Two Kinds of Chicken Jerky Treats for Dogs

However, the recall is not linked to the ongoing concern over Chinese-made jerky treats

Two new chicken jerky treat recalls were announced this week, with Hartz Mountain Corp. pulling Hartz Chicken Chews and Hartz Oinkie Pig Skin Twists Wrapped with Chicken from store shelves. The products are being recalled because "they contain trace amounts of unapproved antibiotic residue," according to the company. 

This comes on the heels of two recalls earlier this month over the same issue, with Nestle Purina PetCare recalling its Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch dog treats, and Milo’s Kitchen recalling its Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers Homestyle dog treats.

In both cases, the suspect antibiotics are ones that have been approved for use in China and other countries, including European Union member states, but not for the U.S. market. There have been no reports of illness. At this point, it is unlikely that this unapproved antibiotic is related to the ongoing reports of illness stemming from dog treats made in China.
