The J.M. Smucker Company is voluntarily recalling some of its Milo's Kitchen dog treats because they may contain elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone.
According to the FDA, if dogs consume high levels of beef thyroid hormone they may show symptoms of increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness. They say the symptoms should subside once consumption of the treats is discontinued, but prolonged consumption can cause vomiting, diarrhea and labored breathing.
The recall involves Milo’s Kitchen Steak Grillers Recipe with Angus Steak and Milo’s Kitchen Grilled Burger Bites with Sweet Potato and Bacon. Below are the lot numbers included in the recall:
- Milo’s Kitchen Steak Grillers / Steak Grillers Recipe with Angus Steak 10 oz / 18 oz / 22 oz bags with UPC codes:
- 0 7910051822 7 (best by 11/15/2018)
