Smile Are Red Whimzee chews safe?

Hi! I'm a new user of this forum and have one male syrian short haired hamster who is 7 months old.

I give him Whimzee chew toys and usually buy the green colour, however my dad came home with a red chew for Gubby. I read somewhere that they contained paprika extract and are therefore unsafe, is this true? and if the red ones are unsafe, is the green the only safe one or is the yellow also alright? Thanks

The red Whimzees are completely fine. Paprika extract isn't really something that would concern me, and numerous people have used all the colors of Whimzees - never having an issue that I'm aware of. The only Whimzees I would avoid are the veggie sausages and veggie strips - unsafe due to clove bud oil not the paprika extract they also have!

I second what AmityvilleHams said... I've been giving all three colours of Whimzee to my hamsters for a long time with no ill effects.
