Nestle Purina PetCare Company and its wholly owned subsidiary Waggin’ Train, LLC. has issued a voluntarily withdraw of two of its products due to trace amounts of antibiotics. 


 The products, which were sold nationally, include:


  • Waggin’ Train 
  • Canyon Creek Ranch 


According to a Nestle Purina PetCare Company press release, the New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets found trace amounts of residual antibiotics in samples of both Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch chicken jerky products. 


The antibiotics found are approved for poultry use in most major countries, but not in the United States. Antibiotics are often used by food production companies globally when raising animals fit for human consumption. The two products in the withdraw pose no health or safety risk to pets. 


There is no indication that the trace amounts of antibiotic residue found is linked to the FDA’s ongoing investigation of chicken jerky products. No other Purina pet treats or products are affected by this withdraw. Canyon Creek Ranch dog and cat foods, which are manufactured in the United States, are also not included.


Consumers who purchased the products included in this withdraw are eligible for a refund. For more information, please contact the Office of Consumer of Affairs at 1-800-982-0704.
