Report Calls for Recall of Seresto, Blames Collar for 2,500 Pet Deaths

The report connects the flea-and-tick collars to “almost 100,000 incidents.”




A congressional report recommends that the Seresto collar should be recalled.

The report connects the flea-and-tick collars to “almost 100,000 incidents and 2,500 pet deaths,” CBS News reports.

The $70 collar is made by Elanco Animal Health. Sales of the product have been barred in Canada.

The report was issued by Committee on Oversight and Reform’s economic and consumer policy subcommittee. Jeffrey Simmons, CEO of Elanco Animal Health, said in a hearing before the committee that the collar has undergone extensive safety studies.

He stated: “Adverse event reports aren’t proof of causation. We haven’t found a single death due to the ingredients in the collar.”

The collar has been blamed for symptoms including skin lesions, lethargy and vomiting.
