Here we go again! Dog & Cat food recall!

Isn't there a song with that lyric in it?  Yes you guessed it another recall for salmonella. My guess would be it won't be the last!  

In dogs, salmonella as you know can cause diarrhea (sometimes bloody), vomiting, fever, lethargy and can this can be transferred to humans. If the human touches the food then does not wash prepping areas or their hands then the family can become ill.  What you may not know is that some dogs can exhibit the symptoms while other dogs are seemingly just carriers without symptoms so if you live among a pack and some are ill and some are not don’t discount a salmonella outbreak.

Keep an eye on the elderly and young children if they  have contact with pets.

I will be watching for the next recall and let you know as soon as it comes in. Getting kind of hard to title these salmonella recalls!

You can find the information on this link but I have done a copy paste from the FDA site so you can give a quick glance.
