Milk Bone Dog Biscuit Product Pull

Milk Bone Dog Biscuit Product Pull

Written By: Susan Thixton

The FDA website had no information of this recall, so I called DelMonte. I was told "this is not a recall, we voluntarily pulled the product because mold was discovered after the product was in the market place." When I asked too many questions of the DelMonte consumer representative, she told me I was going to need to talk with 'someone else'. She took my name and number, I've waited three hours - no return call.

So, if your pet eats Milk Bones, please look for code #90967, UPC 24000-92502, lot code 12071k on the box. The product could contain mold to which we have no idea how dangerous this might be.

Should DelMonte ever decide to return my call, or post information on this 'product pull' on their website, I'll post it here.

Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,

Help save Buster!

I have a 4 year old golden male going to be put down on Monday if no one takes him. He is being given to the vet today to be kenneled and then put down on Monday morning. He is super cute and has had a really rough life. His current owners tried to give him what he needed but was not able. he became outdoors chained up. he growls and can be protective. all he needs is positive behavior modification and a lot of patience. he has had a terrible life; putting him down would be better for his sake. I really want to show him that life can be good with the right people. no small kids. not sure about other animals, he currently lives with 2 chows that are also having problems.

I am their dog trainer and they haven't been training and just called me today to let me know I have till Monday to find him a home.

please any suggestions or help. I can't take him; I live with my parents who are old. my heart is breaking for him.

his name is Buster. unfortunately I have no pictures. he is a dark red and is only approx. 40lbs. who ever takes him will get 4 free private lessons in your home, if more than 20 min travel there will be a travel fee. 4 lessons is worth $350.00

Please help!!!

Wagging yours,
