We got Bodie a box of P.B. & molasses dog biscuits at Cost Plus for Xmas. Fortunately he's got so many treats we hadn't even opened it. I guess I'll try and return them.

Gale...peanut butter that is manufactured for restaurant use, food service in nursing homes and schools and for bakery products may be tainted with samonella. Peanut butter in a jar should be Ok.Its the bulk buckets, and the peanut butter paste that are a concern. They are still trying to determine the source and how widespread the contamination is so its best to be cautious.
