We love our pets and simply want to make sure they are happy and healthy. Being the owner of 3 cats and a dog we go through plenty of pet treats during a month. But there is a product out right now that could potentially kill your pet if you were to feed them this treat! The Minnesota Department of Agriculture has issued an advisory over freeze-dried, un-eviscerated sardines sold by OC Raw Dog of Santa Margarita, CA.

The freeze-dried sardine dog and cat treats are sold at more than a dozen Minnesota pet stores, two of which are quite local, and they could have a potentially fatal contamination.

The MDA highlighted a dozen stores in the state specifically. The two closest stores are in bold.

  • Atlas Pet Supply in Blaine, Elk River, and Stillwater, MN
  • Canine Crossing in Andover, MN
  • Chuck & Don’s in Savage, Coon Rapids, and Chanhassen, MN

If you have these pet treats in your house, you should discard the product and do not feed the product to pets even if the bag of treats doesn't look or smell spoiled. No humans or pets have fallen ill as a result of the product at this stage.
