Wildwood Seed & Specialties of Monroe, Oregon, voluntarily recalled a limited supply of its Sleek & Sassy bird and small animal foods that contain raw in-shell peanuts, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported.

The products use peanut ingredients that Sunland Inc. recalled because of possible Salmonella contamination.

No pet or consumer illnesses have been linked to the Wildwood products, the FDA stated.

The potentially affected lots were distributed to retailers in Oregon and Washington and were sold in plastic bags, jars and paper bags.
