United Pet Group, a division of Spectrum Brands, Inc. is voluntarily recalling multiple brands of packages of rawhide dog chew products. The recall involves the brands:
Healthy Hide Good-n-Fun
Healthy Hide Good-n-Fit
The recall was initiated after United Pet Group identified that certain of its rawhide chew manufacturing facilities 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.
