The Hartz Mountain Corporation Voluntarily Withdraws its Hartz Chicken Chews and Hartz Oinkies Pig Skin Twists Wrapped with Chicken for Dogs

The Hartz Mountain Corporation is voluntarily withdrawing its Hartz Chicken Chews and Hartz Oinkies Pig Skin Twists wrapped with Chicken for dogs in the United States because they contain trace amounts of unapproved antibiotic residue. The company is taking this action after recent Hartz testing found trace amounts of unapproved antibiotic residue in samples of Hartz Chicken Chews and Oinkies Pig Skin Twists wrapped with Chicken products. Even though two-thirds of the products tested did not contain antibiotic residues, the company would rather be overly cautious by voluntarily withdrawing these products from the market. Immediately upon learning of this finding, Hartz contacted the FDA to share its test results and execute a nationwide voluntary withdrawal. There have been no known illnesses to date associated with the consumption of these products. There is no indication that the trace amounts of unapproved antibiotic residue are linked to the FDA's ongoing investigation of chicken jerky products produced in China. The trace amounts of antibiotic residue do not pose a health or pet safety risk.
