Dogswell Jerky Treat Recall

Arthur Dogswell LLC is voluntarily withdrawing certain Dogswell and Catswell brand jerky treats.

These products may contain trace amounts of an antibiotic residue that has not been approved for use in the United States.

The company is taking this action after learning this week that the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets (“NYSDAM”) found trace amounts of this antibiotic during a routine product sampling.

Products Affected:
Chicken Breast and Duck Breast jerky under the Breathies, Happy Heart, Happy Hips, Mellow Mut, Shape Up, Veggie Life, Vitality, and Vitakitty brands with a “Best Before” date of January 28th, 2015 or any earlier date.

The “Best Before” date can be found stamped in black ink on the back of the package on the bottom right hand side.

No other products are affected.

Additionally, Chicken Breast and Duck Breast jerky products with a “Best Before” date of January 29th, 2015 and later have been fully tested for these antibiotics and are not affected.

In the event that a consumer has in their possession any of the affected products, they should contact Dogswell to arrange for a full refund by calling 1-888-559-8833 from 8AM to 5PM PST, Monday through Friday.
