The Jerusalem post reported on May 1 that Canada Goose Coats has issued a blanket recall for its Flat Coat retriever, a grey and white breed that is used in some parts of Canada.
The company told the publication that it has found that some of its products have been contaminated with the E. coli bacteria that can cause serious illness, especially if left in the dog’s mouth and nose.
It said the products should be stored in an appropriate location away from other household items and in a locked container, with the dog on a leash, and that it is urging people to contact their veterinarian if they have concerns.
The Canadian government issued a similar recall in April for its Grey Goose coat, which it said was affected by E.coli.
The dog has since been returned to its owners.
The Jerusalem Post said that it had contacted the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and has requested a sampling of all the Flat Coat products, and is waiting for a response.
It added that it expects a report from the CFIA in coming weeks.
The CFIA said in a statement to The JerusalemPost that it “is aware of a recall of Canadian Goose Coates Flat Coat Products that were received on April 28.
The product was sent to the CFSA for testing and is being reviewed.
We are working to get this recalled product to consumers as soon as possible.”
