Nestle Purina PetCare Company and Waggin' Train LLC to Voluntarily Withdraw Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treat products
Jan 9 13
Nestle Purina PetCare Company and Waggin' Train LLC announced it is voluntarily withdrawing its Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats sold in the United States until further notice. The company is taking this action after learning that the New York State Department of Agriculture & 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, including European Union member states, 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. 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. 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 the company have agreed to do. In addition, because of the differences in U.S. and Chinese regulations, Nestle Purina decided to conduct a nationwide voluntary withdrawal.
