Was There a Kingdom Pets Recall?
No, Kingdom Pets is not part of any recent recalls. There were, however, several complaints reported to the FDA over the years about Kingdom Pets' chicken jerky, which is made in China.
In 2015, the FDA received approximately 5,200 complaints of illnesses associated with the consumption of chicken, duck, or sweet potato jerky treats from numerous brands. Many of the complaints involved products imported from China.
Another jerky treat for dogs, True Chews by Tyson Foods, was also mentioned in several complaints to the FDA. The company has since switched to using chicken sourced from the U.S.
The FDA conducted tests and an investigation, but could not identify a specific cause for the reported illnesses. Consumers grew concerned and even signed petitions, and retailers responded. Petco was the first to pull all chicken jerky treats made in China from its shelves, the Washington Post reported.
Warnings resurfaced again in 2019 and 2020 on social media about chicken jerky pet treats made in China. Kingdom Pets was mentioned in the posts, which said there was a recall on the brand's chicken jerky, but this message was false.
How to Know If Your Pet's Food Is Part of a Recall
When you hear about a recall for pet food that you have, here's what to do:
1. Stop feeding the food or treats to your pet, until you confirm it is safe.
2. Verify the recall by checking the FDA's website at FDA.gov. Don't rely on blogs or social media.
3. If there is a recall, check to see if your product has the batch or lot number that is being recalled. The FDA's website will list identifying factors to look for on the package, such as a lot number, UPC, or expiration date. Often, the recall will be only for products purchased in a specific state or store or within a certain date range.
Why It's So Difficult to Monitor Pet Food Recalls on Your Own
Pet food recalls happen so often that it's a tremendous, time-consuming job to consistently check the FDA's website to see if your pet food or treats are being recalled.
You might rely on social media or your favorite blogs for this type of news, but those aren't reliable sources.
Perhaps you signed up for email alerts? You may not be prepared for the high numbers of pet product recall notices you'll find in your inbox each week.
Plus, it is so important to know quickly if a pet food you have is being recalled. It can literally mean life or death for your pet. If this sounds like too much for any busy pet parent to handle, it is.
Outsource this responsibility to DoNotPay, and you'll sleep better knowing that we monitor every pet-related recall. Thankfully, DoNotPay will notify you if a pet product you purchased is part of a recall, and you'll find out the moment the news is released.
