    I know, most of you here are already making your own treats.... but in case you know folks who are not...

    Hartz Mountain Corp. announced the voluntary withdrawal of two brands of treats, including Hartz Chicken Chews and Hartz Oinkie Pig Skin Twists wrapped with Chicken.


    CHICAGO (CBS) – More pet treats are being recalled in the U.S. because of concern over trace amounts of unapproved antibiotic residue found in product samples.

    Hartz Mountain Corp. announced the voluntary withdrawal of two brands of treats, including Hartz Chicken Chews and Hartz Oinkie Pig Skin Twists wrapped with Chicken. The treats are sold across the U.S. for dogs.

    “Even though two-thirds of the products we tested did not contain antibiotic residues, we would rather be overly cautious by voluntarily withdrawing these products from the market,” said Sean McNear, Senior Director of Quality and Regulatory at Hartz Mountain Corporation in a prepared statement. No other Hartz products are affected by this withdrawal.


    The action comes in the wake of recent recalls involving other brands of chicken jerky products. The Food and Drug Administration and New York State authorities have been investigating. New York authorities have received hundreds of complaints about jerky treats that have made pets sick and even die. One report estimated at least 360 pet deaths and thousands of illnesses.

    The FDA has issued three warnings over the past five years about the possible risks associated with the treats. Affected dogs suffered kidney failure and presented symptoms that included vomiting and diarrhea.

    In January, Nestle Purina PetCare pulled its Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats off the market. Milo’s Kitchen did the same with its Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers Homestyle dog treats.

    LOL on the pics!

    Take a partially frozen chicken breast - slice thinly and in strips. Bake in a 250 degree oven until almost crispy. Ta dah!

    Don bought the dogs new balls while I was gone but left them in the package with the receipt in case I didn't approve. They were Hartz Mountain and are going back tomorrow. Waaay too many recalls from this company for me to feel comfortable giving my dogs anything at all from them. icon_mad.gif icon_mad.gif

    I'm with you guys - nothing from Hartz. I make our girls' treats most of the time, but sometimes I am lazy and will pick up something at the store. Zoey is so picky though. She'll eat some treats like it's the best thing in the world and then the next day, she turns up her nose at it. The other two get lots of Zoey's leftovers. Of course, Princess eats anything, but she is back on the farm in Minnesota with my brother.
