Arthur Dogswell LLC is voluntarily withdrawing certain Dogswell and Catswell brand duck or chicken jerky
treats with a “Best Before” date of January 28th, 2015 (or any earlier date).
The vast majority of these products were distributed via retail stores and mail order companies before
March 1st, 2013. These products may contain trace amounts of an antibiotic residue that has not been
approved for use in the United States.
There is no evidence that products containing trace amounts of this antibiotic pose a health
risk for pets or humans. The company is taking this action after learning this week that the
New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets (NYSDAM) found trace amounts of the
additive during a routine product sampling.
Antibiotics are commonly used, both in the USA and other markets, when raising animals fit for
human consumption. And the antibiotic in question is accepted for use in poultry in other parts
of the world.
The withdrawn products include Chicken Breast and Duck Breast jerky marketed under the following
* Happy Heart
* Happy Hips
* Mellow Mut
* Shape Up
* Veggie Life
The affected products contain a “Best Before” (or earlier) date of January 28th, 2015. No other products are
Additionally, Chicken Breast and Duck Breast jerky products with a “Best Before” date of January 29th, 2015 and later
have been fully tested for these antibiotics and are not affected.
