Peanut Butter Dog Biscuit Recall List Expands

Shaw’s Supermarkets dog biscuit products have "potential to be contaminated.”

Updated: January 26, 2009, 8:15 p.m. EST

In light of a nationwide recall issued by Peanut Corporation of America of peanut butter and peanut paste produced in its Georgia plant, Shaw’s Supermarkets became the latest company to voluntarily recall dog biscuit products.

Shaw’s, a supermarket chain with locations throughout New England, said it is voluntarily recalling Happy Tails and Shoppers Valu multi-flavored dog biscuit products “because they may contain peanut butter that has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.” The products were sold at Shaw’s stores.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, pets with Salmonella Typhimurium infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain.

Pets who don’t show any symptoms can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If an animal consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, pet owners are advised to contact their veterinarian.

The identified items have not been directly linked to the Salmonella outbreak. However, Shaw’s recalled the products as a precautionary move.

This product recall includes the following:

  • Happy Tails Multi-Flavored Dog Biscuits, 26 oz., UPC#: 41163-42406
  • Happy Tails Multi-Flavored Dog Biscuits, 4 lb., UPC#: 41163-42403
  • Shoppers Valu Multi-Flavored Dog Biscuits, 4 lb., UPC#: 41130-30507

The recalled dog biscuit products can be returned to a Shaw’s store for a full refund or exchange. No other products are included in the recall.

Customers with questions can contact Supervalu Inc. at 877-932-7948. For more information and updates, customers can visit the FDA website.

Also recently added to the peanut butter pet product recall list on the FDA website was Puppy Chow snack mix (all sell-by dates, all package sizes), sold under the Avanza Supermarket brand name. Stores that carry this pet food product include Wholesale Food Outlet, SunMart Foods, Family Fresh Market, and Family Thrift Center.
