I forwarded a message this morning from the FDA Recall service to Hedgehog Help email group and thought I would post something here as well. Many of you may have read about the peanut butter paste recalls due to potential salmonella contamination. This morning in the news they were reporting over 500 sick and 5 dead. The products being recalled are made from paste so candies, ice cream, cookies, etc... this morning a new type was added, dog biscuits. I felt the need to post this just in case anyone in the hedgehog community is feeding a product with peanut butter paste in it to any of their animals.
