Dog Food Recall; Dogswell Treats Unsafe

A number of Dogswell and Catswell duck and chicken jerky treats are being voluntarily recalled by the manufacturer for trace amounts of an antibiotic not approved in the United States. The treats were manufactured in China and include Breathies, Happy Heart and Happy Hips, among others. The potentially contaminated treats have a “Best Before” date of January 28, 2015. Any packages marked with earlier dates are also at risk of containing the antibiotic residue.

The products include chicken and duck breast jerky with the following names: Breathies, Happy Heart, Happy Hips, Mellow Mut, Shape Up, Veggie Life, Vitality, and Vitakitty.
