More Rawhide Dog Chew Recalls

Multiple Brands of Rawhide Dog Chews Recalled Due to Contamination

At Christmastime we all like to give our canine best friends a gift or two! But several recent recalls mean that you need to check your puppy’s presents for safety, as well as for any recent recalls.

United Pet Group, which is part of Spectrum Brands, has voluntarily recalled several brands of rawhide dog chews due to chemical contamination. In total, United Pet Group – which sells these chews nationally – has recalled several rawhide chew brands (listed below).

These dangerous products are carried by big-name pet stores and grocery stores – including Petco, PetSmart, Walmart and other national chain and local retailers.

The chews may or may not have “United Pet Group” on the label or packaging. The rawhide chew name or manufacturer may be different, including Petco, Walmart Essential Brands AND MORE (See Full List below).

The recalled rawhide Dog Chews were manufactured by facilities in Mexico, Colombia and Brazil using a dangerous ammonium compound mixture in the processing and manufacture of the rawhide chews. This compound is an anti-microbial agent that IS approved for cleaning food processing equipment, but is NOT approved in the United States for use in the production of rawhide dog chews.

Ingestion of the contaminate Dog Chews has resulted in reports of illness, including vomiting and diarrhea. Fortunately, no doggie deaths have been attributed to the recalled Dog Chews yet.

With any toxin consumed by pets, smaller animals are typically at the greatest risk. While this is also true for the recalled Dog Chews, keep in mind that bigger dogs are likely to ingest bigger quantities of rawhide and can become ill as well.

If you have already given a recalled rawhide chew toy to your dog, remove it immediately and watch your dogs for any symptoms of poisoning – such as vomiting or diarrhea. If they are displaying any signs of illness, bring them to your veterinarian immediately – and advise the veterinarian of the specific rawhide they ingested.
