Certain lots of these popular dog treats may contain high levels of beef thyroid hormone — and there have already been reports of sickened dogs.

Maker: The J.M. Smucker Company
Cause: Potentially elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone
Announcement: Company news release dated March 22, 2018 (archived here)

According to the company’s news release, “The FDA informed Smucker of 3 illness reports, and we immediately initiated a voluntary recall of the limited, impacted production.”

The dog treats were distributed nationally, and this recall is limited to the 2 specific varieties, dates and sizes noted above.

The FDA has said that “pets that eat food or treats containing thyroid hormones may develop hyperthyroidism, a disease that is rare in dogs and usually triggered by thyroid cancer.”
