Merrick Pet Care Recalled Good Buddy and Backcountry Treats Containing Beef Due to Elevated Levels of Thyroid Hormone
Merrick Pet Care, of Amarillo, Texas, recalled beef dog treat varieties due to the potential that they contain elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone. Consuming beef with high thyroid hormone might cause increased thirst and urination, weight loss, increased heart rate and restlessness. Consumption of high levels for a long period of time, the symptoms may increase in severity and may include vomiting, diarrhea and rapid or labored breathing. This potential health risk was brought to Merrick’s attention as a result of the FDA sharing one consumer complaint where the dog’s health was temporarily impacted while eating Merrick Backcountry Great Plains Real Beef Jerky 4.5 oz. The dog’s health improved and fully recovered after discontinuing consumption of the treat. @ https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm608655.htm" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm608655.htm
