Mold Problem Spurs Recall Of DogCandy Hound Cake



Published:

Mold was found on several cakes after they were delivered to Petsmart stores.

The treats were sold exclusively in about 130 Petsmart stores in 36 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

The recall applies to 7.5-ounce packages with a best-by date of 08-2015 and UPC bar codes of 692614010058 (Blueberry Hound Cake) and 692614010041 (Holiday Hound Cake).

Mold was found on several cakes after delivery to Petsmart, the FDA stated. The manufacturer reported that the cakes were packaged while warm, which raised the moisture content, and that procedures have been changed to prevent a recurrence.

No pet illnesses were reported in connection with the recalled cakes, the manufacturer stated.

Consumers may return the cakes to the nearest Petsmart store to receive a refund or ship them to Claudia's Canine Cuisine, 100 Four Paws Lane, Maumelle, Ark., 72113 and request a refund or a replacement product. All shipping fees will be reimbursed, the company reported.
