Iams ShakeablesIams, 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 to become moldy.

The recall 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, the company 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, Phoenix-based Petsmart urged customers to stop feeding the treats and return any remaining product to the nearest Petsmart store in exchange for a refund.

As pet guardians we want only the best of our pets. This means foods with less chemicals. The down side is a much faster "spoil" rate. At least IAMS caught the problems and recalled it. Given what I have seem my dogs eat when we do our forest runs (rotting carrion, deer poop, etc) I suspect the mold would not have bee toxic to big dogs. Just my opinion.
