Contributed

With the recent FDA announcement of a salmonella investigation involving peanut butter products distributed through the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), personnel with PetSmart participated in a voluntary recall of products containing peanut butter.

Although there were no reported cases of injury or illness related to peanut butter products sold in the pet store, personnel initiated the recall as a precautionary measure due to a potential for risk.

Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 20, PetSmart associates removed seven of Grreat Choice dog biscuits - peanut butter and assorted flavors - from shelves and website. “We initiated the recall after determining these products sold between August 21, 2008 and January 19, 2009 contain peanut butter product linked to the salmonella recall announced by the FDA,” offered a spokesman for PetSmart.

Preliminary tests on some of the products revealed no traces of salmonella.

PetSmart customers are advised to check the description and UPC of any food purchased against the following list. The UPC can be found on the product label under a series of bars. At this time, only these UPCs stores in the United States are affected.

Customers who have purchased any recalled treat products should discontinue use immediately and return the pet food to any PetSmart for a complete refund or exchange. Additionally, pet caretakers are urged to their medical professional for any concerns that their pet’s health has been affected by any of these recalled treat products.
