A sheriff's deputy leaves the the Blakely, Georgia Peanut Corporation of America processing plant deemed the source of the recent salmonella outbreak

As we've been learning over the last few weeks, pet products aren't immune to the concerns over peanut butter and peanut paste, ingredients connected with a recent salmonella outbreak.

Manufacturer Salix has announced a voluntary recall of its Healthy-hide Deli-wrap 3-Pack 5" Peanut Butter-Filled Rawhide dog treats, which were found to contain peanut butter from the Peanut Corporation of America processing plant deemed to be the source of the outbreak. 

The treats were sold at PetSmart, Target and Wegmans stores throughout the U.S. and Canada and bear the UPC code 09109333354.

Flavors of Grreat Choice dog biscuits from PetSmart and Happy Tails dog biscuits from Albertsons and Jewel-Osco stores are among other recalled pet treats containing ingredients from the Blakely, Ga., plant.  Check out the Food and Drug Administration's website for a full list of recalled products.
