So many pet treats contain peanut butter--so now I'm worried about giving those to my dogs. I just noticed I bought peanut butter flavored Frosty Paws frozen dog ice cream by Purina. That treat is on hold for now.

I recently heard on the nightly news that there were some more products added to the list of recalls. Although it may be perfectly fine, to be on the safe side I would return the Frosty Paws to the store where I purchased the item. I would expect that they would give you your money back, if only to have a satisfied customer.

Honestly, I threw out everything peanut butter that I had bought over the past three months. My dog already has a sensitive stomach, and I don't want to risk any issues.

There was an article on this website last week about a pet treat recall. You should be able to navigate back to find it. January 21, 2009

NEW YORK -– In response to the Food and Drug Administration's recall of peanut butter products after determining a nationwide Salmonella Typhimurium outbreak, PetSmart issued a voluntary recall of seven Grreat Choice dog biscuit products on Tuesday.
With more than 1,100 stores in the U.S. and Canada, the pet retailer determined the peanut butter and assorted flavored biscuits sold between Aug. 21, 2009, and Jan. 19 contain peanut butter product linked to the FDA's salmonella recall announced on Monday.
"While some of these products have been tested and no traces of salmonella were found, we have recalled these products as a precautionary measure," was the message posted on PetSmart's Web site. "Because of this potential risk, we're immediately removing these products from our shelves and Web site."

After the first scare I make my dogs there treats using baby food , flour, and eggs from my yard. I also cook a large cassarole on the weekend and warm it up all week. The reciepe was from the internet and I had my vet check it to make sure it was healthy.

Contact the store where you purchased the treats. It may take the treats back and reimburse your money.

I would toss the treat, without hesitation. They're announcing more and more products for recall daily. It isn't worth the risk!
