Default Recall alert!

Don't know too many people still feeding their pets Waggin Train products, here is the latest recall to pass along:

January 9, 2013 – Nestlé Purina PetCare Company of St. Louis, MO has today announced it is voluntarily withdrawing its Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch dog treats sold in the U.S. until further notice.

The company is taking this action after learning this week that the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets (NYSDAM) found trace amounts of antibiotic residue in samples of Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch chicken jerky products.
These antibiotics are approved for use in poultry in China and other major countries, but are not among those approved in the U.S.
Antibiotics are commonly used globally – including in the United States – when raising animals fit for human consumption.
According to the company, Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch products are safe to feed as directed.
However, due to regulatory inconsistencies among countries, the presence of antibiotic residue is technically considered an adulteration in the United States.
The company claims this finding does not pose a safety risk to pets.
New York State authorities initially requested that the Company remove Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch chicken jerky treats from retail locations in the state of New York, which we have agreed to do.
In addition, due to the differences in U.S. and Chinese regulations, Nestlé Purina decided to conduct a nationwide voluntary withdrawal.
Nestlé Purina contacted the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding NYSDAM’s findings.
There is no indication that the trace amounts of antibiotic residue are linked to the FDA’s ongoing investigation of chicken jerky products. The trace amounts of antibiotic residue (in the parts-per-billion range) do not pose a health or pet safety risk.
No other Purina treats or pet food products are affected by this withdrawal. In addition, Canyon Creek Ranch dog and cat foods, which are manufactured in the United States, are not included in this withdrawal.
What to Do



For product refund or more information call the Nestle Purina Office of Consumer Affairs at 800-982-0704. Or go to Waggin' Train - Delicious Dog Treats and Chews - Wholesome dog treats.
You can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.
Or go to http://www.fda.gov/petfoodcomplaints.
