Dogcandy Brand Holiday Hound Cake and Blueberry Hound Cake being recalled - FDA

(Best Syndication News) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the voluntary recall of Dogcandy Brand Holiday Hound Cake and Blueberry Hound Cake, with the best-by date of 08-2015, because they may contain mold. The dog food was distributed and sold at around 130 PetSmart Stores in 36 states. So far, Claudia’s Canine Cuisine has not received any reports of dogs becoming ill from eating the cakes.

The DogCandy branded Holiday Hound Cake and the Blueberry Hound Cake came in 7.5-ounce packages. Only the bags that have the best-by date of 08-2015 are involved in the recall. The dog treats were made specifically for PetSmart Corporation to distribute at their retail store locations.

The Dog Candy products were sold at PetSmart stores in the following states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Mold was found on several of the cakes after they arrived in stores. The mold growth may have occurred when the cakes were packaged while they were still warm and excess moisture was captured in the bag. Now that the company has been made aware of the problem, they have changed their procedures to avoid it in the future.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled dog cakes are asked to take the product back to any PetSmart store to get a full refund. Another option is to send the product back to Claudia’s Canine Cuisine to get either a refund or replacement. They ask if you send the recalled product to specify if a refund or replacement is desired, along with the mailing information. The company’s mailing address is Canine Cuisine® 100 Four Paws Lane, Maumelle, Arkansas 72113. The company will also be reimbursing shipping fees to customers.
