Cat treats recalled
Arthur Dogswell is volunarily recalling 1,051 cartons of cat treats because they could potentially contain propylene glycol, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The Los Angeles-based company says the cartons were packed as either 10 or 50 packages per case of Catswell Brand VitaKitty Chicken Breast with Flaxseed and Vitamins.
The product is packaged in a re-sealable 2 ounce orange plastic bag with a clear window.
High levels of propylene glycol in the treats could cause serious health problems in cats, including anemia. No illnesses have been reported so far, the FDA says.
The VitaKitty treats were distributed nationwide via retail stores and mail order from April 13 through June 14.
According to the FDA, the VitaKitty Chicken Breast with Flaxseed and Vitamins lot codes affected are: SEW12CH032701/03c and SEW12CH032702/03c with a best before date of 09/10/13 and 09/11/13, respectively (UPC code 8 84244 00057 2). Lot codes are found on the bottom right backside of the package.
