Trace amounts of residual antibiotics in several lots of Milo’s Kitchen Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers Home-style dog treats prompts voluntarily recall.

Milo's Kitchen Chicken GrillersMilo's Kitchen Chicken Jerky"Pet safety and consumer confidence in our products are our top priorities,” says 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 says.

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

I am so depressed today, I had to put down my wonderful Remi, she was the best dog. I adopted her about 7 years ago form the pound. Big girl my beautiful teddy bear. I have been giving her Milos Chicken strips for the past two years.I do believe and my vet that that she was totaly effected by this recall, she had all the signs and to see what she went thru so sick, fever, lerthargic, not eating it hit fast, she could barely walk. The Vet tried everything but she just got worse.I could'nt see her suffer anymore. I held her and told her how much I loved her, tried not to cry, It was one of the hardest things for me. She was my life the only thing I came home to after work. But now she gone. I hope no one else has to deal with this. Please be careful about giving your dogs treats. Love you Remi ! Miss you.
