Dog food manufacturer Goya Foods Inc. says a recall of products containing a high-protein keto-friendly diet may be linked to the creation of dogs that appear to have been infected with canine gastroenteritis.
The recall includes dog treats, kibble and feed, as well as some dog foods.
Goya says it has been notified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that it has received reports of dog food products containing the high-potency, ketogenic diet.
Gummy treats made with the high protein, keto Diet are available as treats at the Goya grocery store in Seattle.
Goya says the recall affects approximately 5 million Gummy Treats and their associated packaging and that the affected products are currently unavailable.
“The dogs that were infected may have developed symptoms, including diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fatigue, and decreased appetite, among other things,” Goya said in a statement.
Gawai says it was unaware of any canine cases of canine gastroentic disease, and the company says it will begin testing and cleaning affected Gummy and Gummy treats for possible outbreaks.
Gourmet Foods Inc., maker of Gummy, Kibble and Gourmet treats, says it is investigating.
“We will be working closely with the U,S.
government to determine if a human case has been identified and provide any additional information at that time,” a spokesperson said in an email.
Gigasweet is an offshoot of the company that made Kombucha, the popular beverage that can be made with a fermentation starter or tea and is a popular alternative to soda and other sweetened beverages.
GigaSqueeze is a dog food made by Goya and sold in pet stores.
The company says that GigaSquees and its products are safe to use in dogs and cats.
GobiStar Foods, maker of dog foods and dog treats marketed under the Gobi brand, said it was not aware of any reports of canine cases.
Gyoza, the dog food maker, said that the recall affected approximately 10 million Dogfoods, Kiosks, Gourmet Chews, and other pet food products sold through its stores and its online retail business.
Gyoza said it plans to update its recall information soon.
