Potential for Mold Growth Spurs Limited Shakeables Recall

Posted: March 26, 2013, 3:45 p.m. EDT

Iams, a brand of P&G Pet Care Co. of Mason, Ohio, has voluntarily recalled a limited number of Shakeables Soft & Chewy Treats for Dogs because of a potential mold problem.

 Shakeables
A select number of Shakeables Soft & Chewy Treats for Dogs in lamb and turkey flavors were voluntarily withdrawn.
The recall, announced March 22, involves only the lamb and turkey flavors. Chicken-flavored treats are not part of the recall.

The lots numbers, printed on the bottom of each can, are the first four digits shown on the second line.

The affected lots are 2342, 2325, 2331, 2332, 2341, 3016, 3017, 3018 and 3046 (turkey) and 2338 (lamb).

No animal illnesses were reported, Iams stated, adding, “These treats do not meet our quality standards.”

Pet owners who have questions may call 877-894-4458 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Posting an advisory on its website, the Phoenix-based Petsmart chain urged customers to stop feeding the treats and return any remaining product to the nearest store in exchange for a refund.
