Wildwood Seed & Specialties of Monroe, Ore., voluntarily recalled a limited supply of its Sleek and Sassy bird and small animal foods that contain raw in-shell peanuts, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported today.

The products use peanut ingredients that Sunland Inc. recalled because of possible salmonella contamination.

Bird and small animal food recalled.
