More Pet Food Recalled In Salmonella-tainted Peanut Scare



Published:

Magnolia Bird Farm’s Large Hookbill mix is among the bird foods recalled.

Magnolia Bird Farm Inc. of Anaheim, Calif., has become the latest pet food manufacturer to recall products linked to peanuts sold by a New Mexico processor.

Potential salmonella contamination has been cited in all the recalls, but no animal illnesses have been reported.

Magnolia on Nov. 14 recalled raw and roasted in-shell peanuts and seed mixes that contain peanuts. The products were distributed from Oct. 12, 2011, to Oct. 12, 2012.

The peanuts were processed at Sunland Inc. in Portoles, N.M. Nearly all of the more than 100 SKUs recalled nationwide involved foods in the human sector.

Other recalled pet products linked to Sunland peanuts include Sleek and Sassy bird and small animal foods from Wildwood Seed & Specialties of Monroe, Ore., Yoghund Organic Banana & Peanut Butter frozen yogurt dog treats from TBD Brands LLC of Exeter, N.H., and jarred Dogsbutter from Dog for Dog of Santa Monica, Calif.

Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in pets include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may exhibit similar symptoms.

Consumers who bought the Magnolia products are urged to return them to the store for a refund or dispose of them immediately. Anyone with questions may call Magnolia at 714-527-3387 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST Tuesday through Saturday.
