This report will be short and to the point, so that you can
go check that your parrots are NOT eating any of the foods
that have been recalled. I first learned about this recall
from the New York Bird Club.

Some of the products are not parrot related, but some of
you may well have hamsters, gerbils, or other pets that might
use the listed products, so I wanted to include the entire set of
facts. Here is the information on which products are involved:

----------------------------------------------------------------
RECALLS AND FIELD CORRECTIONS
----------------------------------------------------------------

a) Wild Harvest Fruit and Honey Cockatiel, Recall # V-021-2008;
b) Ecotrition Tropical Fruit and Honey Bars, Recall # V-022-2008;
c) Wild Harvest Hamster, Gerbil, Mouse, Rat Honey Cakes, Recall #
V-023-2008 CODE, Lot: 07096, Lot: 07108, and Lot: 07096

----------------------------------------------------------------
RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER:
----------------------------------------------------------------

United Pet Group Inc., Cincinatti, Ohio

----------------------------------------------------------------
REASON FOR RECALL:
----------------------------------------------------------------

Pet treats were imported from China. LOS-DO sampled the
treats and they tested positive for melamine. The shipments
were placed on hold for redelivery but were erroneously shipped
into commerce. Over 54,000 units have been distributed in the
United States in the States of Arizona, California, Florida,
Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Texas, and Washington.

So if they weren't distributed in my state they're safe? (not to seem insensitive, just want to make sure)

I don't know for sure. I bought some for my keets and they are going back to the store I'm not taking any chances.
I think China is out to kill all of our pets first it was dog and cat food not its bird and little animal food.
From now on I'm going to check and hopefully I can find stuff made in the USA.

Yeah I know, we need to stop getting things from China, it's not safe. I'm going to check from now on too, but for Christmas I might have given my cockatiel that treat, not positive it was that brand, but I'm not in any of those states so hopefully it was safe...

edit: Oh, never mind, I checked the receipt and the brand was Animal Planet. phew
