Recall on Scotts suet products

From Business First of Columbus:

The Marysville-based lawn and garden giant’s Scotts Co. LLC subsidiary this week launched a voluntary recall of five varieties of suet wild bird food products over concerns that they might contain peanut meal bought from Lynchburg, Va.-based Peanut Corp. of America’s Blakely, Ga., plant. Peanut Corp.’s products have become the center of a federal probe into a salmonella outbreak that has involved scores of illnesses and several deaths, including two in Ohio.

Peanut Corp. originally only recalled peanut butter and paste but recently expanded efforts to include all peanut products made in Blakely since Jan. 1, 2007, Scotts said. The company said salmonella not only can affect animals but can pose a risk to humans who handle products tainted with it. No illnesses have been reported and products from the Blakely facility are no longer being used, Scotts said.
Affected products include items manufactured between Dec. 27, 2008, and Jan. 17, 2009:
Morning Song Nutty Safari Suet, 11 oz.
Morning Song Woodpecker Suet 3 pack, 1.78 lbs.
Royal Wing Raisin Suet, 11.75 oz.
Morning Melodies Variety Suet (3 count)
Morning Song Variety 15-pack suet, multi-pack with 15 suets and feeder

Scotts said customers should throw away the products and can request replacements or refunds at 1-866-512-8876 or scottswildbirdfood.com.
