PetEdge Issues Toothpaste Recall

A possible contamination has led to PetEdge recalling one of its pet toothpaste products.

Due to possible diethylene glycol contamination, PetEdge has issued a voluntary recall of one of its toothpaste products for pets.

Diethylene glycol is a chemical found in antifreeze and other solvents. If ingested, it can cause headaches, renal failure or death.

PedEdge officials state they have received no reports of any illness associated with the toothpaste and are issuing the recall as a cautionary measure.

The affected product is the 1.4 oz. Top Performance ProDental Toothpaste with Toothbrush kit in both the beef and mint flavors.

Product details:

• Item number: TP128
• Beef Flavor UPC Code: 721343128151
• Mint Flavor UPC Code: 721343128564

Consumers are urged to discard the product immediately. To receive a credit, customers will have to complete and return a PetEdge Product Destruction Log. For details and more information, call PetEdge at 888-211-8706.
