Here we go once again with another recall about dog treats. Some restricted quantities of dog treats manufactured by Milo’s Kitchen have been the subject of a voluntary recall.
I have to admit that I was completely unaware of how often treat recalls occurred until I began paying a bit more attention to the topic in order to write about it on my blog. It makes me happy to have gained this new level of awareness, and it makes me even happier to be able to share this knowledge with you.
The following is important information about the recall of Milo’s dog treats:
Who, What, Why
The J.M. Smucker Company was informed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of three canine diseases that were caused by the eating of certain lots of two kinds of Milo’s dog treats. Following the receipt of the notice, a decision was made to voluntarily recall a small number of manufacturing batches of the products that were deemed to be contaminated.
The concerned batches of snacks have been voluntarily recalled because there is a possibility that they contain increased amounts of cow thyroid hormone.
This recall affects two different versions of Milo’s dog treats: Milo’s Kitchen Steak Grillers / Steak Grillers Recipe with Angus Steak and Milo’s Kitchen Grilled Burger Bites with Sweet Potato and Bacon. Both of these products may be found on the company’s website. The following is a listing of specific lot numbers and dates:
This recall does not impact any other lot numbers of Milo’s Kitchen Steak Grillers or Milo’s Kitchen Grilled Burger Bites, nor does it affect any other types of Milo’s dog treats.
About Elevated Beef Thyroid Hormone
If a dog consumes anything that has increased levels of beef thyroid hormone, the dog may display symptoms such as the following:
- increased urination
- increased thirst
- increased heart rate
- weight loss
When the dog stops consuming food that has high amounts of thyroid hormone, these symptoms will probably go away on their own.
When a dog eats significant quantities of beef thyroid hormone over a prolonged period of time, the symptoms may grow more severe and may include the following:
- rapid breathing
- labored breathing
What should I do?
If you have bought any of the particular lots of Milo’s dog treats described above, you should immediately stop giving them to your dog and return them to the store where you purchased them. It is strongly suggested that you get in touch with your dog’s primary care veterinarian if your pet has consumed a large quantity of goodies and is displaying any of the above signs and symptoms.
