There have been rumors lately of a recall on Milkbone dog biscuits. There has been no official statement on the MilkBone Website. However, we did find this on the Milkbone Facebook page:
“We have not issued any recall for any of our Milk-Bone dog snacks. Because we believe in the quality of our products, we did initiate a voluntary withdrawal of two sizes of Milk-Bone Large Biscuits with a single lot code from distribution 12071K. We determined that the biscuits may not have been completely dried after the baking process and did not meet our quality standards, but rest assured there is no health or safety issue associated with this product!”
I’m not sure how “not completely drying” a treat will affect it. Could it possibly cause mold to grow? I have seen pet foods that have grown mold. Some moldy foods can produce mycotoxins which are quite toxic. Or, it’s possible that the not-well-dried treats were simply not as tasty as the regular ones.
Did any of you have one of the “affected” batches? I’d love to hear from you. Post a comment below if you have any more information.
