Hartz Mountain Corporation is voluntarily recalling their dog treats, Hartz Chicken Chews and Harz Oinkies Pig Skin Twists (which are wrapped in chicken) due to contaminated chicken from China.
There are trace amounts of an antibiotic that the FDA has banned but is generally used in Chinese poultry.
Hartz is based in Secaucus, New Jersey and their products are found in many Brooklyn pet food stores.
What’s Being Recalled?
All Hartz® Chicken Chews™ Soft and Tenders:
All Hartz® Chicken Chews™ Soft and Tender Bite Sized:
All Hartz® Oinkies® Pig Skin Twists wrapped with Chicken
No other Hartz products are affected by the withdrawal.
What to Do?
If you have these products contact Hartz Consumer Affairs at 800-275-1414 for a refund.
If you are getting really sick and tired of pet food companies continuing to source their ingredients in China, particularly chicken which has caused so many pet deaths already, contact the FDA directly.
Play it safe by only purchasing dog treats made in the USA. We recommend:
