Peanut Recall Expands To Bird And Small Animal Food

Wildlife Seed and Specialties have recalled both birth and small animal feeds due to possible salmonella contamination.

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.

No pet or consumer illnesses have been linked to the Wildwood products, the FDA stated.

The potentially affected lots were distributed to retailers in Oregon and Washington and were sold in plastic bags, jars and paper bags.
