FDA Announces Voluntary Recall of Some Claudia’s Canine Cuisine Treats

December 13, 2012

A report from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) indicates that Claudia’s Canine Cuisine® has voluntarily recalled its Dog Candy® brand of Holiday Hound Cake (7.5 oz.) and Blueberry Hound Cake (7.5 oz.).  These products are manufactured for, distributed to and sold in Pet Smart stores in 36 states.  (www.fda.gov/safety/recalls/ucm332004.htm?source=govdelivery.)

The cause is a possibility of mold.

Best by date of 08/2015 will be on affected packages.  The UPC code for Holiday Hound Cake is 692614010041.  The UPC code for the Blueberry Hound Cake is 692614010058.

Selected stores in the following states have pulled the products:  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; Wisconsin.

Mold was found on several cakes distributed to stores.  Investigation showed that there was a higher than normal moisture content in the affected packages, because the products were packaged while still warm.  New procedures have been implemented to correct this problem from happening in the future.

If you find that you have purchased one of these products, return it to your local Petsmart for a full refund.  You may contact Claudia’s Canine Cuisine® with any further questions, Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. (CST).  501/851-0002.
