Pet Treat Recall – Jan 20, 2009

PetSmart has voluntarily recalled seven of its Grreat Choice Dog Biscuit products. See the official press release below. We do anticipate more of these recalls to follow as we learn the extent of the peanut butter contamination.

Please take a moment to review the ingredient list of your current pet treats and pet food to ensure that peanut butter or peanut butter paste is not included. If it is, contact the manufacturer or store where you purchased and learn if it is was manufactured at the Blakely, Georgia facility.
