Dog Treats Recalled Over Possible Chemical Contamination

(KTAB/KRBC) - Several rawhide dog treat products, including some sold at HEB and Market Street, have been recalled because they could be contaminated with an industrial cleaning chemical. 

A press release say United Pet Group issued the recall after learning their facilities in Mexico, Colombia, and 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, according to the press release. 

Brands affected by the recalled include Companion, Dentley's, Enzadent or Dentahex, Essential Everyday, Exer-hides, Good Lovin' or Petco, Hill Country Fare, and Priority Pet.
