Claudia’s Canine Cuisine is recalling DogCandy Holiday Hound Cake and Blueberry Hound Cake because of the possibility of mold, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The cakes were sold at PetSmart stores in several states, including Michigan.

After stores reported moldy cakes, the company investigated and found that the cakes on one production run were packaged while they were still warm, causing extra moisture, and, in turn, the moisture caused the mold.

The packages of recalled cakes bear a best by date of 08-2015. The UPC for the Blueberry Hound Cake is 692614010058, and the Holiday Hound Cake's UPC is 692614010041.

The recall applies to 7.5-ounce bags only, and no other products have been impacted. No illnesses have been reported.

Stores in the following states also carried the product: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Consumers who have purchased any of the product should discontinue use of the product. Telephone inquiries may be directed to Claudia’s Canine Cuisine Monday - Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (CST) by calling 1-501-851-0002. The company can also be reached by email:

Holiday Cakes for dogs? Blueberry hound? I love my dog to death, but Holiday cakes for dogs? I think he would get more pleasure out of finding a slice of American Cheese and the hunt for where I hid it than a Bluebery Dog Cake ! Must be a 1%'er thing.
