PETCO stores nationwide are immediately pulling five SKUs of cow hooves treats, sold under the PETCO brand, from all of its shelves following a health alert issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The alert warns consumers not to use pig ears and beef hooves pet treats manufactured by Pet Carousel because the products may be contaminated with Salmonella.
According to the FDA statement, no illnesses associated with these products have been reported, but consumers in possession of these products are advised not to handle them or feed them to their pets.
The health and wellbeing of our customers’ pets is our topmost priority, so we’re immediately pulling any beef hooves product that originated at the Pet Carousel facility. Below is a list of the five SKUs we’re removing from shelves:
- 49743 – PETC-1 OZ BULK CHOO HOOVE
- 69957 – PETC-1LB NATRL 10PK CHOO HOOVE
- 447064 – PETC-1LB SMOKE 10PK CHOO HOOVE
- 706655 – PETC-2Z STUFFED CHOO HOOVES
- 706671 – PETC-2Z PB STUFFED CHOO HOOVES
Pet Carousel manufactures a number of pet treat products distributed nationwide in both bulk and retail packaging for sale in pet food and retail chain stores. While Pet Carousel does manufacture beef hooves for PETCO, it does NOT supply our company with pig ear treats, so if you’ve purchased pig ear treats at PETCO, they are not affected by this recall.
We’ve cancelled any further deliveries or shipments of the recalled products to our stores and blocked the sales of all five SKUs at cash registers in all stores and online at PETCO.com. If you believe you are in possession of any of the affected products, we advise you not to handle or feed them to your pets and welcome you to bring them back to your local PETCO store for a full refund or exchange.
PETCO does carry an 8-piece bone/body variety pack of treats that includes one cow hoof that is produced by another manufacturer and is NOT affected by this recall. That unaffected SKU is:
- 1229397 – PETC-10.9 OZ 8PC VARIETY PACK
