Iams, a brand of P&G Pet Care Co. of Mason, Ohio, has voluntarily recalled a limited number of Shakeables Soft & Chewy Treats for Dogs because of a potential mold problem.
The recall, announced March 22, involves only the lamb and turkey flavors. Chicken-flavored treats are not part of the recall.
The lots numbers, printed on the bottom of each can, are the first four digits shown on the second line.
The affected lots are 2342, 2325, 2331, 2332, 2341, 3016, 3017, 3018 and 3046 (turkey) and 2338 (lamb).
A select number of Shakeables Soft & Chewy Treats for Dogs in lamb and turkey flavors were voluntarily withdrawn.
No animal illnesses were reported, Iams
stated, adding, “These treats do not meet our quality standards.”
Pet owners who have questions may call 877-894-4458 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
