Dog Food Recall: IcelandicPlus LLC Recalls Whole Capelin Fish Pet Treats Due to Exceeding FDA Size Restrictions

Cause: Potential for Clostridium botulinum contamination

Announcement: FDA recall notice dated March. 23, 2020

What was recalled: Icelandic+ Whole Capelin Fish Pet Treats

Icelandic Plus LLC is voluntarily recalling its Capelin Pet Treats due to some of the fish exceeding the FDA compliance maximum of 5 inches. Salt-cured, dried, or fermented un-eviscerated fish larger than 5 inches have been linked to botulism poisoning outbreaks in humans.

The product would be available in pet stores throughout the US and comes in a  1.5 or 2.5 ounce clear plastic package or a 2.5 ounce tube marked Icelandic+ Capelin WHOLE FISH or PURE FISH TREATS FOR DOGS.

There have been no reported illnesses of dogs in connection with Capelin to date nor any detection of Clostridium botulinum in any of the products. However, due to the potential risk, the company decided to cooperate with the FDA guidelines and recall this product.
