Dog owners beware! Your dog's treats may be recalled due to the peanut butter salmonella scare!
In recent months, dog owners were rattled by pet food recalls involving brands like Pedigree, Special Kitty and Ol' Roy. These salmonella cat and dog food recalls were limited to pet food that was manufactured at one specific Mars Petcare US factory in Pennsylvania.
But this more recent pet food recall is much more widespread. Recalled dog treats include many different brands, which were contaminated with salmonella tainted peanut butter.

Several varieties of Carolina Prime Dog Treats may contain recalled salmonella-tainted peanut butter. As a result, a handful of Carolina Prime Dog Treats are recalled.
