Yoghund Frozen Yogurt Dog Treats Recall

If you're like me, you've noticed the recent peanut butter recalls and thanked your lucky stars that nothing you bought fell within that category.

I haven't bought Yoghund products either, but thought that I ought to mention it here, that the Organic Banana and Peanut Butter frozen yogurt flavor has been recalled for possibility of Salmonella contamination.

According to the FDA release:

Although there have been no reported incidents of human or animal illnesses in connection with their product, the company has elected to recall all case product of Lot Code 268 12 and earlier, cup and four pack Best By Date of 9.24.14 or earlier.
Pets with Salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic, have diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected, but otherwise healthy pets, can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.
Individuals handling the frozen yogurt product can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product. People who believe they may have been exposed to Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. According to the Centers for Disease Control, people who are more likely to be affected by Salmonella include infants, children younger than 5 years old, organ transplant patients, people with HIV/AIDS and people receiving treatment for cancer.
Product was distributed through retailers nationwide.
Pet owners who are unsure if the product they purchased is in the recall or have additional questions may call us at 603-775-7772 x1007 between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

I've noticed Yoghund on the shelf in one of the stores around here, and while I considered it, I don't tend to spend that kind of money on ice cream for ME, yet alone Princess Elka. So, if you have bought it, check your "best by" and Lot Code dates, just to make sure you and yours are safe!


  1. Fortunately, there's another flavor, because our dogs are pretty fond of that stuff!

  2. That is such scary stuff! Thanks for the info.

  3. P.S.- My swear word bu**er was "bugger" which my hubby just informed me wasn't a swear word as he left for work laughing! :)

  4. I'm just going to quit buying treats of any kind. It's getting too scary.


  5. So many things have been recalled, pretty scary.

  6. We have never bought those. I would think there would be more of an issue for people rather than dogs.

  7. I've just started making my own treats using human food. I hope human food is safe.

  8. Too many recalls. Wish these companies would do a better job looking out for us pets, and our peoples too.

  9. It seems like there are so many recalls. I don't do much shopping, but my girlfriend is always stocking the cupboards. I'll have to check to see if we have any Yoghund products.

    Thanks for the update!

  10. While at Petco the other week with Herman Miller, the manager gave him a Yoghund which he consumed with gusto (and when I came near, heard about the first growl ever from him toward me!). He is healthy so hopefully it wasn't the peanut butter one but will be sure my friend with the pet products store knows about this. Dang. Thanks for sharing.
