Dog biscuits recalled due to possible fungal contamination

Breeder’s Choice has voluntarily recalled one batch of its Active Care Biscuits-Healthy Dog Treats because the biscuits weren’t properly dried before packaging, and mold may have developed on them. Symptoms of mold ingestion include loose stool, but no human or canine illnesses related to the biscuits have been reported to date

Breeder’s Choice, a Central Garden & Pet company, has issued a voluntary recall for a single batch of Active Care Biscuits-Healthy Dog Treats due to mold discovered in one of the lots of dog biscuits.

 The following product is included in the recall:

 Product Code/SKU/ Material #: BCP-080

 UPC Code:  0130104895

 Size: 24 oz.

 Product Name: Active Care Biscuits-Healthy Dog Treats

 Best Before Code: 19/Dec/2013

 Product and product lots that do not appear above have not been affected.

 According to a release from the manufacturer, the mold seems to have occurred due to varying dryer temperature settings for drying biscuits. This exposed the recalled product to excess moisture and has since been remedied.

 Pet owners who fed their pets the recalled biscuits should watch for symptoms that may develop. Common symptoms associated with mold exposure include gastrointestinal issues such as loose stool. At the time of this release, there have been no reports of human or pet illnesses associated with this recall.
