The recalled VitaKitty treats were distributed from April 13 through June 14, 2012

Los Angeles-based Arthur Dogswell LLC is voluntarily recalling 1,051 cartons of its Catswell brand VitaKitty Chicken Breast with Flaxseed and Vitamins treats because the product could contain propylene glycol from glycerin found in a vitamin E supplement used during manufacturing.

Propylene glycol in high levels causes anemia in cats. No illnesses have been reported.

The VitaKitty cartons in question were distributed nationwide via retail and mail order outlets from April 13 through June 14, 2012.

The recalled jerky treats were packaged in a resealable 2-ounce orange plastic bag with a clear window.

The lot codes, found on the back side of each package, include:

  • SEW12CH032701/03c with a best before date of 9/10/13
  • SEW12CH032702/03c with a best before date of 9/11/13

The recall followed a routine surveillance sample collected by Dogswell and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

“We are taking this voluntary action because it is in the best interests of our customers and their feline companions,” said Marco Giannini, the company’s CEO and founder.

Customers with recalled VitaKitty treats should return it to the store for a full refund. Online retailers should be contacted for information about return and refund policies.

Anyone with questions may contact Dogswell at 888-559-8833 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PDT Monday through Friday.
