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.
