Has Pup-Peroni Ever Been Recalled?

On July 30, 2021, Petful learned that certain packages of Original Beef Flavor and Triple Steak Flavor Pup-Peroni Dog Treats were being withdrawn by the manufacturer because of concerns about mold. Over the past several months, customers had been posting photos of apparently moldy treats.

We have been unable to contact Big Heart Pet for details about the recall, but we verified the news through multiple retailers. We also received a copy of a “product notice” letter from J.M. Smucker Co. to distributors, which provided lot numbers.
