Ministry of Agriculture orders to collect lots of dog treats from three companies

The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply ordered the collection of lots of dog treats from the companies FVO Alimentos Ltda., Peppy Pet Indústria e Comércio de Alimentos para Animals and Upper Dog Comercial Ltda.

According to the ministry, lots of adulterated propylene glycol used in the manufacture of snacks were detected. The suspicion is that the compound has been contaminated by monoethylene glycol, a toxic substance, causing the deaths of dogs in at least nine states and the Federal District, according to complaints from the tutors.

In a statement, FVO Alimentos says that it has taken Dudogs, Pâté Bomguy and Bomguytos Bifinho from the market before the ministry’s decision, published on Friday (16). Sought after, Peppy Pet and Upperdog did not respond until the publication of the report.

The contamination of the compound began to be investigated after the deaths, in early September, of nine dogs in Minas Gerais and São Paulo, which consumed snacks from the Bassar Pet Food brand.

The batches that must be collected, according to the Ministry of Agriculture, are Bifinho Bomguytos chicken and barbecue snacks, Bifinho Qualitá barbecue flavor and Dudogs, from FVO Alimentos Ltda; Grilled Chicken Steak and Peppy Dog, Peppy Dog Steak with Sweet Potato Flavor, Peppy Dog Steak with Peas, Peppy Dog Roasted Beef Steak, Peppy Dog Steak Puppies – Milk and Oatmeal and Peppy Dog Meat with Carrot Steak, from Peppy Pet Indústria and Commerce of Animal Food; and Dogfy injected sizes PP, S and M. Check the full list of lots below.

In the text of the determination, the ministry says that propylene glycol is a product allowed for animal feed and that the investigations are related to a possible contamination of the compound by monoethylene glycol.

“To date, there is no directive from the Ministry to suspend the use of products that contain propylene glycol in their formulation, in addition to those already mentioned”, says the folder.

The product is from the same family as diethylene glycol, a substance identified as the cause of death of ten consumers of Backer beer in Minas Gerais in 2019 and 2020. Both cause severe damage to the kidneys.
