The J.M. Smucker Company has announced a limited voluntary recall of specific lots of two varieties of Milo’s Kitchen dog treats, distributed nationally, because the products potentially contain elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone.
The affected products include the following items and lots:
About Elevated Thyroid Hormone
Dogs consuming high levels of beef thyroid hormone may exhibit symptoms such as increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness.
These symptoms may resolve when the consumption of these levels is discontinued.
However, with prolonged consumption these symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea, and rapid or labored breathing.
Should these symptoms occur, we recommend pet owners contact their veterinarian immediately.
About the Recall
The FDA informed Smucker of three illness reports and the company immediately initiated a voluntary recall of the limited, impacted production.
No other Milo’s Kitchen dog treats, or any other product manufactured by The J.M. Smucker Company, are impacted.
The voluntary recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
