Milo’s Kitchen™ issued a recall on January 9, 2013, for its Chicken Grillers and Chicken Jerky home-style dog treats. This recall was due to the presence of unapproved antibiotic residue detected by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets (NYSDAM). The recall affects retailers nationwide. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was notified and the recall issued.

Normally, antibiotics are used to keep chickens disease-free and healthy, though the antibiotics used in this particular case were unapproved for use within the United States. Part of Milo’s Kitchen’s™ comprehensive testing process includes those for a wide range of substances most commonly used to ensure the health of the chickens it uses in its products.

Unfortunately, this particular antibiotic was not one of the substances tested for. And while there was no known health risk to pets due to the presence of the antibiotics, the product was recalled due to not meeting the company’s high-quality standards.

Customers who purchased any of the products in question can receive a full refund.
