J.M. Smucker Recalls 2 Varieties Of Milo’s Kitchen Treats
Two varieties of Milo’s Kitchen Dog treats are being recalled for possible elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone.
It seems like there’s been one recall after another when it comes to dog foods and treats. In a massive recall, several products from J.M. Smucker have been recalled after trace amounts of pentobarbital were found in several of its dog foods.
Now, J.M. Smucker is recalling products from their Milo’s Kitchen brand line, after concerns of treats containing elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone. This can increase thirst and urination in dogs, as well as cause weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness.
Consumers reported three illnesses after the consumptions of the treats, and the Food and Drug Administration says that symptoms that are associated with eating high levels of beef thyroid hormone may right themselves when the consumption is ended. They caution, however, that prolonged consumption can lead to increased severity in symptoms and may even include vomiting, diarrhea and labored breathing. The FDA recommends that pet owners who have fed their dogs any of the possibly affected treats contact their veterinarians immediately.
The recalled treats are:
- Kitchen Steak Grillers/ Steak Grillers Recipe with Angus Steak: UPC Code 0 7910051822 7; 18 ounce bags with best if used by dates of 11/15/2018 and 4/26/2019
