Peanut Butter Shank Bone Recalled

Salix, a Deerfield Park, Fla.-manufacturer of rawhide dog chews, has recalled another one of its Healthy Hide products, because the item contains peanut butter made by Peanut Corp. of America (PCA).  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has confirmed PCA as the source of a Salmonella typhimurium outbreak.

Salix is recalling its one-count, 6-inch peanut butter-filled shank bone. The Healthy Hide shank bone is sold at Price Chopper, Fred’s and Target.

The product’s UPC code is 0-91093-33479-0. It comes in a clear package with an attached header card and the name Healthy Hide on the front. Packages are marked with a lot code that falls between CP 20081508 and CP 20012209.

Salix recently recalled its Healthy Hide Deli-wrap 3-count peanut butter-filled rawhide treats, which were also made with peanut butter from Peanut Corp. of America.

The company stated it is not aware of any reported cases of illness related to this or any other products.

According to the FDA, the risk of animals contracting salmonellosis is minimal. However there is risk to humans from handling these products.
