Peanut Butter Recall Expands to Dogsbutter

    September 28, 2012—The nationwide recall of peanut butter made by Sunland, Inc, has caused a pet-food company, Dog for Dog, to issue a voluntary recall of its peanut butter for dogs, called Dogsbutter. The initial voluntary Sunland recall began after 29 people reportedly contracted salmonella-type illnesses in 18 states, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration .

    Rocky Keever, CEO of Dog For Dog, LLC, issued this statement:

    While NO DOGSBUTTER products have tested positive for Salmonella, our number one focus is ensuring the health, safety and well-being of Dogs. While the FDA, CDC and State agencies investigate the cause of reported illness, we are taking voluntary steps to ensure the safety of our four legged family members. We have worked closely in developing DOGSBUTTER and produce it in only the highest quality, human grade facilities with quality testing to ensure quality for pets. When there is a question, we want to be proactive and protective of the families who trust in our brand and love their pets as much as we do. If you have purchased one of these products, please dispose of it, or return it to your local retail pet center for a full refund. Retailers should return the DOGSBUTTER to the distributor for a full credit”.

    The Dogsbutter recall is limited to jars manufactured May 1, 2012, through September 24, 2012.
