Here is the latest in the voluntary recalls of dog treats:

January 25, 2013 — The Hartz Mountain Corporation of Secaucus, New Jersey, has announced it is voluntarily withdrawing its Hartz Chicken Chews and Hartz Oinkies Pig Skin Twists wrapped with Chicken for dogs in the United States because they contain trace amounts of antibiotic residue.
