I would also like to remind all furry families especially here in the USA, to be careful about giving us any biscuits with peanut butter in. On Jan. 20, PetSmart recalled seven kinds of its Great Choice dog biscuits. For the list of recalled peanut butter products, see the Food and Drug Administration site at www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/peanutbutterrecall/index.cfm.)
"While the risk of animals contracting salmonella is minimal, there is risk to humans from handling these products so we want to underscore that it is especially important for people to wash their hands and to make sure that their children wash their hands after feeding treats to pets," FDA officials say.
"Salmonella can be transmitted to humans who have touched the contaminated product. While salmonella is not common in dogs and cats it can cause serious infections."
Please.......We don't want sick buddies or their moms and dads.... so just be careful during this latest food scare.
