No KONG pet treat is involved in the recent recall of peanut butter. We do not receive any ingredients from the company involved.
Since we ship worldwide, KONG pet treats are subject to strict regulations regarding the presence of Salmonella. All KONG consumables meet with recommended heat treatments (cook times and temperatures) and each batch is tested by certified third party laboratories for Salmonella and Enterobacteriaceae. No KONG consumable has been subject to recall. All KONG pet treat manufacturers are inspected and certified by USDA/APHIS.
The KONG Company sells two peanut butter flavored dog treats. The peanut butter flavor in KONG Stuff’N Peanut Butter Flavored Treat (paste) contains no peanut butter. The peanut butter ingredient used in KONG Peanut Butter Snacks comes from North Hampton Peanut Company. The North Hampton Peanut Company is in no way involved in the recall.
