The Company is taking this action after learning this week the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets found traces of antibiotic residue in samples of Cadet brand Chicken Jerky Treat products.
These antibiotics are approved for use in poultry in China and other major countries, but are not among those approved in the U.S.
At first, New York State authorities requested that IMS Trading Corp remove Cadet Brand Chicken Jerky treats from retail locations only in the state of New York.
Because of this request, the company has decided to conduct a voluntary withdrawal of these chicken treat products nationwide.
