The following information from PetMD details the recall and all affected products:
Breeder’s Choice, a Central Garden & Pet company, has issued a voluntary recall for a single batch of Active Care Biscuits-Healthy Dog Treats due to mold discovered in one of the lots of dog biscuits.
The following product is included in the recall:
Product Code/SKU/ Material #: BCP-080

Size: 24 oz.
Product Name: Active Care Biscuits-Healthy Dog Treats
Best Before Code: 19/Dec/2013

According to a release from the manufacturer, the mold seems to have occurred due to varying dryer temperature settings for drying biscuits. This exposed the recalled product to excess moisture and has since been remedied.
Pet owners who fed their pets the recalled biscuits should watch for symptoms that may develop. Common symptoms associated with mold exposure include gastrointestinal issues such as loose stool. At the time of this release, there have been no reports of human or pet illnesses associated with this recall.
