Dingo Twist treats Recalled due to AMANTADINE!

Hey Folks!

I have been a bit off my game on the upkeep of the blog an dog food recalls because I am currently raising a puppy to become an assistance dog. So Much of my time is spent  with the pup and my other two hounds that get jealous of the attention and so I must shower myself on them just as much!  If I don't lose weight by the end of this adventure there is something seriously wrong!  

So down to business:

The recall  involves Dingo Chip Twists "Chicken in the middle" 6 per bag.  The treats come from china (no surprise there) but is put out by United Pet Group Inc, in Cincinnati OH.
