Milo’s Kitchen Recalls Chicken Jerky, Chicken Grillers Home-style Dog Treats



Published:

Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky is made without artificial flavors, colors or fillers.

“Pet safety and consumer confidence in our products are our top priorities,” said Rob Leibowitz, general manager of pet products at the San Francisco-based company. “While there is no known health risk, the presence of even trace amounts of these antibiotics does not meet our high quality standards. Therefore, today we decided to recall both products and asked retailers to remove the products from their shelves.”

No other Milo’s Kitchen products are affected.

The discovery was made by the New York State Department of Agriculture, which informed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Monday. Milo’s Kitchen consulted with both agencies before issuing the recall notice.

While antibiotics are commonly used in the poultry industry, “The antibiotics found in the products were unapproved and should not be present in the final food product,” Milo’s Kitchen stated.

Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers are both sourced from the same chicken suppliers, the company reported.

The company noted that it conducts safety testing from procurement to manufacturing to distribution, but “Milo’s Kitchen did not test for all of the specific antibiotics found by the New York Department of Agriculture.”

Consumers who return or discard the treats will receive a full refund, Leibowitz said.

The company is fielding questions about the recall at 877-228-6493.
