Yoghund Frozen Yogurt Dog Treats Recall


October 18, 2012 — TBD Brands has announced a voluntary recall of Yoghund brand Organic Banana and Peanut Butter flavor frozen yogurt dog treats due to possible contamination with Salmonella bacteria.

The event was reported by the FDA in a news release updated October 17, 2012.

Yoghund claims this is a cautionary action, as these products contain organic peanut butter linked to recent recalls of Sunland, Inc. of Portales, NM.

Salmonella can affect both humans and non-human animals and are the result of ingesting contaminated food.

What Products Are Being Recalled?

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 with a cup and four pack Best By Date of 9-24-14 or earlier.

Where Were the Recalled Products Sold?

Recalled lots of Yoghund brand Organic Banana and Peanut Butter flavor frozen yogurt dog treats were distributed through retailers nationwide.

What to Do?

Salmonella is serious business — for both you and your pet. So, if you can confirm your package of treats is one of the products being recalled, stop feeding or handling it immediately.

If you’ve already discarded the packaging – or you’re in any way in doubt – do not take chances. Be safe. Stop feeding the product anyway.

In its bulletin, the FDA suggests:

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 extension 1007 between 9 AM and 5 PM

You can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

    To everyone wanting pictures of all the recalled products google does have a photo search. Just click images at the top and search for the name of the product…

  • Lmatshall22

    PLEASE, would you be able to include a photo of the dog food product you are telling us about?

    Treat or any type of dog food.
    I too get nuts when I hear of a recall?

    Nothing in the world that we live in today is 100% pure and safe.  But I don’t agree that treats and food made and processed for our loved dogs are near safe at all..
    When I make my own food and treats for my dogs…at least I know exactly what is in it and I also know the handeling from me to my pup is safe.  I do not trust these companies that use scraps of old food (that at one time was thrown out)…and one day someone came up with a great money making idea LET”S MAKE DOG FOOD!   Yeck!! Look at the ingredients in commercial pet foods and treats…I bet you can’t understand most of the words..I know I can’t….
    As for hormones in chicken…It is not allowed in USDA chicken sold in our markets today.  Some companies use it as a marketing device.  They have been told they need to remove that statement because it is not in any chicken.  I think Tyson was one of them.. (If I am correct) that is about to remove that statemenet.
    I just believe that our dogs systems are more sensitive than most think.  There lives are very short compared to us and I want to keep them as long as I can.  If I can help with their feeding….I will do the best I can.

     Google works well.

  • Is there any way you can include a picture of the product(s) you send us info about? I know I would find it helpful.

  • Tracygeorg

    THANK YOU for protecting our FUR-KIDS!  They give so 
    much loving adoration!  

  • ohnoesaz

    +1 Amy. Making your own treats is not at all a fail safe method. The ingredients you use can be poisoned, such as growth hormone chicken or tainted peanut butter. You would need to grow or raise your own ingredients to be near true safety.

  • Mary2jaynes

     I buy non fat yogurt in the store stir with peanut butter, or bananas and freeze. Its cheaper, better for them and I am not worried about what dog ‘treat’ recall is coming next. No more buying dog treats.:( Dont trust them.

  • Amydunn19

    It seems that even if you make them at home, some ingredient from your local store could just as easily be recalled like peanut butter. There are no guarantees unless you grow it on your own.

  • Doglady7007

    Indeed THANK YOU Mike. Wonderful to have your alerts

  • Doglady

    What a GREAT service you provide Mike THANK YOU for helping take care of our beloved pets

  • Doglady7007

    What great ideas  THANK YOU     

  • Rehlers

    You should make your own frozen yogurt treats.  It is easy!

  • tucker

    This is happening too often. There needs to be better controls on the production of food (dry and wet) and any and all treats. Dogs are not just pets, they are beloved members of our families. My dogs love these frozen yogurt treats.

  • Ruthie

    I want to thank you for keeping us posted.  My 2 dogs are my babies, and I want to make sure that they are safe.  I also enjoyed the home made treat.  I will surely start making some of them. 

  • Melissaandcrew

    Want to hear the definition of pathetic? all the time I spend making dog treats healthy, and tonight I am baking  for the humans double chocolate chip cookies from a “bag”..just add egg and water, lol

  • Hound Dog Mom

    Benhur –

    Yoghund is not a Chinese product. It’s an organic frozen yogurt treat made in the U.S. with human grade ingredients in a human food processing plant. The peanut butter variety was affected due to recent contamination with salmonella of some of the human grade peanut butter supply. Many brands of human peanut butter were recalled as well not too long ago.

  • EvesHumanMom

    Me, too.  I just use a piece of fruit, like a blueberry to stop up the hole in the kong and put in yogurt with a few more pieces of fruit in and freeze.  Or freeze no salt homemade chicken broth in little cups with or without pieces of chicken and/or fruit. 
    When our little rescue came to us, she thought ice cubes were treats, too, but soon wised up.  I do lots of little cupfuls, unmold them and keep them in a ziploc in the freezer for convenience.  Same with slow baked chicken jerky bits and sweet potato slices, liver, and liver cookies (two parts cooked veggies like green beans, carrots, and/or pumpkin blended with one part cooked chicken liver, held together with an egg an oatmeal baked at 350-375 like regular cookies, recipe from a DFA poster) so that she comes running whenever I open the freezer.

  • TAP

    love the yogurt suggestions!  I have a super picky dog who eats next to nothing.  The only dog treats she will eat are the duck tenders by Vitalife and Dingo bones. 
    Any suggestions of high flavor meat based treats for even the pickiest dogs? 

  • Laurie

    No, it’s the peanut, every company that makes product that uses peanuts from the plant in Mexico that had the peanut recall is being told by the FDA they have to issue voluntary recalls for their products.

  • Melissaandcrew


    I am lazy. I just  put plain yogurt in my cake decorating tubey thing, and squirt out quarter size blobs on a piece of wax paper-then freeze. The dogs love them : )

  • Lpr918

    Duffy, Thank You

  • Duffy2121

    32 oz plain yogurt
    2 bananas
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    1 Tbsp honey
    mix in blender and freeze

  • TAP

    Do you have any recipies you could share?  I’m in the same boat, don’t really trust anything anymore and want to start making my own treats. 

  • M Ward1993

    NOOOOOOO not Yoghund!!!

  • dog_lover

    You don’t really know….The only way to know for sure is to make your dog treats yourself in your own kitchen….That is what I do anymore…That way, I KNOW without a doubt that my dogs are getting wholesome treats….And, BTW, when I am making their treats, they sit there right by the stove just waiting for their treats to be done….It’s so cute!!!

  • dog_lover

    Thank you, Dog Food Advisor for keeping me updated on the latest advisories….

  • Tigermama

    OMG is there any safe treats out there anymore?  I have been buying dehydrated liver treats purchased at Trader Joes and they are made in the US….how do you really know if your treats are safe?

  • Hiskid

    Our dogs got sick on this treat last year which surprised us because they had loved it earlier in the year. We decided it was because of the expiration date and I never got around to buying it again. Now, I’m really glad I didn’t.

  • Benhur

    Is this another Chinese product?

  • Hound Dog Mom

    My dogs love yoghund during the summer. Good thing I haven’t bought any recently..
