Peanut Butter Treat Recall
« on: January 27, 2009, 10:04:20 AM »
It seems the peanut butter salmonila (sp) problem also included dog treats.  Here is a link to the treats on recall.

That link tries to log me in to an unsecured page. Do you have a less funky link to the treats?

Here's the FDA site.  Dog treats are toward the bottom of the list.

Veterinary toxicologist Dr. Steven Hansen, director of the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center in New York City, points out that dogs are generally pretty resistant to salmonella. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is collaborating with public health officials in many states and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to investigate an outbreak of human infections due to Salmonella serotype Typhimurium. The products recalled are peanut butter-related items (such as crackers with peanut butter). So far, peanut butter in jars is deemed safe.

Hansen explains that the ASPCA animal poison control center advises against giving any recalled product to dogs. Even if most dogs are not at risk for salmonella illness because they're far less susceptible than people, it's possible some dogs may become ill. An even greater concern are people giving dogs tainted peanut butter treats if they don't thoroughly wash their hands. Bottom line, if a product is recalled don't use it, for yourself or for your pets.
