Antibiotic residue find prompt US dog treat re-call

Two major petfood companies in the US have recalled dog treats following the discovery of antibiotic traces that are not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration

Earlier this month Nestle Purina PetCare began the withdrawal of its Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats, and Del Monte Foods of its Milo’s Kitchen-brand Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats.

New York State’s Department of Agriculture notified the FDA and the companies that antibiotics had been found in several lots of the treats made in China.

The antibiotics found in the products were unapproved and should not be present in the final food product, the FDA said.
