Milo's Kitchen is recalling its Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats from retailer shelves nationally. No other Milo's Kitchen products are affected.
New York State's Department of Agriculture found trace amounts of residual antibiotics in several lots of Milo's Kitchen Chicken Jerky. That prompted the company to recall Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers, both of which are sourced from the same chicken suppliers.
While the use of antibiotics to keep chickens healthy and disease-free while raising them is standard practice in poultry production for both human and pet food, the antibiotics found in the products were unapproved and should not be present in the final food product.
"Consumers who discard the treats will receive a full refund," said Rob Leibowitz, general manager, Pet Products.
