SECAUCUS, N.J. -- Hartz Mountain Corp. announced Thursday that they will be recalling 20,000 packages of chicken jerky pet treats in the United States.
Dog treats Hartz Chicken Chews and Hartz Oinkies Pig Skin Twists Wrapped with Chicken have been pulled from the shelves.
Company officials said they conducted independent laboratory tests after New York state agriculture officials found evidence of antibiotic residue in treats produced by Nestle Purina PetCare Corp. and Del Monte Corp.
Nestle withdrew Waggin' Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats and Del Monte pulled its Milo's Kitchen Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats from shelves nationwide.
