Peanut Butter Recall and Dog Treats

Please note that Poochieheaven's Peanutbutter and Blueberry Dog Treats are not involved in the recall and are 100% safe for you dog.

Here is a message from the baker:

This message is to inform you that STAM Peanut Butter & Blueberry treats are not affected by the recent recall. We use Adam's all-natural peanut butter, which we purchase in jars from local grocery stores.

It appears further investigation is needed to identify the source of the salmonella, but the head of the FDA is saying, "...there is no indication that the major national name-brand jars of peanut butter sold in retails stores are linked to the recall." Officials are focusing on peanut paste, as well as peanut butter, produced at a Blakely, Ga., facility owned by Peanut Corp. of America. Its peanut butter is not sold directly to consumers but distributed to institutions and food companies.

Please contact us if you have any questions.


Take $1 off our peanut butter dog treats by entering PBTREATS at checkout.

Note that while you may be concerned for your order, Salmonella is not as dangerous for dogs as it is humans. Many people feed their dogs a raw diet and thus dog's stomachs are meant to handle this bacteria much better than humans.

Also many treats are baked at high temperatures which eliminates the chances of salmonella. Many of the issues with this recall are items that are not backed and contain pure peanut butter, like Little Debbie Snacks.

So while it is good to be safe, baked dog treats do not pose much of a problem.
