Happy Tails Multi-Flavored Dog Biscuits and Shoppers Value Multi-Flavored Dog Biscuits
seen here have been recalled.

Supervalu Inc., a grocery chain operator headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minn., has voluntarily recalled Happy Tails and Shoppers Value multi-flavored dog biscuit products because the items may contain peanut butter contaminated with Salmonella. According to the company, the move is a precautionary measure following a nationwide recall of peanut butter and peanut paste issued by Peanut Corp. of America.

The recalled dog biscuits were sold at some of Supervalu’s banner stores, including Acme, Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, and Shaw’s/Star Market. They include:

  • Happy Tails Multi-Flavored Dog Biscuits, 26-ounce package
    UPC No. 41163-42406
    Sold at Acme, Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, and Shaw’s/Star Market

  • Happy Tails Multi-Flavored Dog Biscuits, 4-pound package
    UPC No. 41163-42403
    Sold at Acme, Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, and Shaw’s/Star Market

  • Shoppers Value Multi-Flavored Dog Biscuits, 4-pound package
    UPC No. 41130-30507
    Sold at Acme and Shaw’s/Star Market

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and experience diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets may have a decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pains. Well animals can be carriers and infect other animals or humans, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Customers who purchased the recalled dog biscuits can take the products back to their store location for a full refund or exchange.

Supervalu’s recall follows a long list of other product recalls that have been issued since the FDA linked the Peanut Corp. of America’s plant in Blakely, Ga., as the source of a nationwide Salmonella typhimurium outbreak.

According to Supervalu, its recalled items have not been directly linked to the Salmonella outbreak. However, because of safety concerns, the company has issued the voluntary recall.

Customers with questions can contact Supervalu Inc. at 877-932-7948. More information regarding the FDA’s investigation and other recalled products are available at the FDA’s website.

This should not keep happening, it is very scary that this keeps happening. You feel like making food and treats at home to make sure that they are safe.
