KONG Announces Limited Recall of Jumbo Aussie Sticks

By Deidre Grieves    October 01, 2014 at 03:00PM

Jakk’s Pacific, Inc. and KONG have voluntarily recalled two lots of dog treats from PetSmart stores due to non-toxic mold growth.


The following KONG dog treats are being recalled:


KONG Jumbo Aussie Sticks Beef

Item Code: 75559

Best Before Dates: 01/30/16 and 01/31/16


KONG Jumbo Aussie Sticks Lamb

Item Code: 75560

Best Before Dates: 01/30/16 and 01/31/16


According to a company letter obtained by Pet360, the mold is non-toxic and only affected the two lots listed above. It was discovered in the Jakk’s warehouse, where KONG Jumbo Aussie Sticks are manufactured. Both dog treat product lots affected by this recall are in the process of being destroyed. The small amount of product that shipped to PetSmart has been proactively withdrawn from their warehouses and removed from all shelves.


To date, no consumer complaints have been received by KONG. If you have KONG Jumbo Aussie Sticks that are affected by this recall, you are advised to return it to PetSmart for a full refund.
