The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a recall for dog treats sold at PetSmart stores in Pennsylvania and 35 other states.
The recall applies to 7.5 oz. bags of DogCandy® Holiday Hound Cake and Blueberry Hound Cake because the cakes have the potential to become moldy.
The FDA reports that the recall applies to a single production run and packed in a 7.5 ounce paw print bag marked with a best by date of 08-2015. The “best by” date can be found on the ingredient label on the back of the package just above the UPC bar code.
- The UPC for the Blueberry Hound Cake is: 692614010058.
- The UPC for the Holiday Hound Cake is: 692614010041.
Mold was found on several cakes after they were delivered to the stores. Under investigation the company discovered that the cakes contained higher moisture content due to the product being packaged while still warm. The company has taken every precaution and implemented new additional procedures to correct the issue.
Claudia’s Canine Cuisine® has not received any reports of illness associated with the affected product.
Consumers who have purchased any of the 7.5 oz. bags of DogCandy® Holiday Hound Cake and/or Blueberry Hound Cake should discontinue use of the product.
