United Pet Group recalls multiple brands of rawhide dog chew products that may be contaminated with chemicals

ST. LOUIS, 2017-Jun-13 — /EPR Retail News/ — United Pet Group is voluntarily recalling multiple brands of packages of rawhide dog chew products after they identified that certain of its rawhide chew manufacturing facilities located in Mexico and Colombia, as well as one of its suppliers in Brazil, were using a quaternary ammonium compound mixture as a processing aid in the manufacturing of rawhide chews. The compound is an anti-microbial chemical that is approved for cleaning food processing equipment, but it has not been approved in the U.S. as a processing aid in the production of rawhide chews for dogs.

United Pet Group received very limited reports of pet illness based on the volume of possibly affected rawhide chew products manufactured and distributed. The primary complaint received from consumers was that the affected product had an unpleasant odor. Diarrhea and vomiting were also reported.
