Are oysters healthy for your dog?

Hello:
Does anyone know about the nutritional value of smoked oysters for dogs or cats? My dog ate a 4 oz pack of smoked oysters. How did this happen you might ask?
I manage a seafood company and Minakin, my dog, tore into a vaccuum pack of smoked oysters and devoured them while I was away. I was shocked that the little critter could tear to shreds a foil mylar vac pack but neverthless she did. I thought for sure she would get sick but nothing happened in fact she was perfectly healthy and wants more. So I have to keep her out of the warehouse.
Here is my question, we have 2500 packs of smoked oysters with sand/grit in them that I can't sell to humans. We are a small company and this stock which cost me over $12,000 to produce has been in our warehouse for two years.
We are considering selling the natural smoked oysters (ingredients:(no vegetable oil) just oysters, salt, a pinch of sugar and wood smoke) as pet food. Is this a suitable food product for cats or dogs? Has anyone heard that oysters are good or bad for dog treats/food?

Any knowledgeable feed back is much appreciated.
Thank you.

My dogs eat smoked oysters whenever I eat them. They LOVE them. I have no idea how nutritionally correct they are for dogs, but they certainly would work well for stinky treats.
How can you tell when the oysters have grit in them?

Where can i buy vaccuum packs of smoked oysters? sounds better than canned.
