October 18, 2012 — TBD Brands has announced a voluntary recall of Yoghund brand Organic Banana and Peanut Butter flavor frozen yogurt dog treats due to possible contamination with Salmonella bacteria.
The event was reported by the FDA in a news release updated October 17, 2012.
Yoghund claims this is a cautionary action, as these products contain organic peanut butter linked to recent recalls of Sunland, Inc. of Portales, NM.
Salmonella can affect both humans and non-human animals and are the result of ingesting contaminated food.
What Products Are Being Recalled?
Although there have been no reported incidents of human or animal illnesses in connection with their product, the company has elected to recall all case product of Lot Code 268-12 and earlier with a cup and four pack Best By Date of 9-24-14 or earlier.
Where Were the Recalled Products Sold?
Recalled lots of Yoghund brand Organic Banana and Peanut Butter flavor frozen yogurt dog treats were distributed through retailers nationwide.
What to Do?
Salmonella is serious business — for both you and your pet. So, if you can confirm your package of treats is one of the products being recalled, stop feeding or handling it immediately.
If you’ve already discarded the packaging – or you’re in any way in doubt – do not take chances. Be safe. Stop feeding the product anyway.
