FDA announces pet-treat recall

Hartz Mountain is recalling its Chicken Chews and Oinkies Pig Skin Twists wrapped with Chicken for dogs because they contain trace amounts of unapproved antibiotic residue, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The antibiotics are approved for use in poultry in China and other countries, including those in the European Union, but are not among those approved in the United States, the FDA says.

This recall comes several weeks after Milo's Kitchen recalled its Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats because of antibiotic residue.

For more information on the Hartz recall, please go to FDA website.
