eFoodAlert author Phyllis Entis, also known as the Food Bug Lady, posted a notice of recall of Milk Bone dog biscuits as posted on Ingles Markets website.
Ingles Markets website states: Milk Bone Dog Biscuit 10lb
Delmonte Pet has a recall on Milk Bone Dog Biscuit 10lb. Code #90967 Milk Bone Dog Biscuits 10 lb (UPC 24000-92502) with lot code 12071k Only!
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,
