Keep in  mind that salmonella can spread to people, most vulnerable are the elderly and children in the human category.  Always remember to wash your hands whenever you feed your dogs anything, it's just a good habit to get into because there will always be recalls for salmonella and life is too short to feel like you have these flu like symptoms all through the year! 

Don't forget if you have multiple pets that share a water bowl that can become contaminated also. Call your vet for treatment recommendations if you suspect your dog has this.
