US recalls Salmonella contaminated petfood

At least 125 products –including pet food – have been recalled in connection with the salmonella outbreak according to the US Food and Drug Administration.

All the products (cookies, ice cream and pet food) contained peanut paste or peanut butter made at a factory located in Georgia and owned by the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA).

The FDA confirmed the presence of salmonella at the PCA factory. The factory sells it products to more than 70 institutions and food companies, but not to individual consumers.

FDA officials said the factory has suspended operations, and initial investigations show that it was the sole source of the outbreak.

On Wednesday, the peanut butter granola bars of NutriSystem Inc., and seven dog biscuit products of PetSmart Inc. were recalled.
