If your pooch is happy on Happy Hound Dog Food he won't be happy for long if yours is one of the recall products containing Salmonella. Pro- Pet LLC in St Marys Ohio has a voluntary recall on limited items of dog and cat food due to the potential of salmonella (no surprise there!). To date no illness have been reported but if your pups are acting ill this may be the reason.
Symptoms in pets can be lethargy, diarrhea with or without blood, stomach cramping, and fever. Please keep in mind that if you run a multiple dog home some may show the symptoms and others may just be carriers so if not all dogs become ill, it does not mean that the others don't have it.
On the human side, well hopefully you know by now that you can get salmonella by touching the food and not washing your hands. Young children and the elderly are very vulnerable and more likely to develop serious cases. Watch for vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, fever, flu like symptoms. Though rare it can also cause arterial infections , endocarditis, arthritis , urinary tract problems and muscle pain.
Watch for updates because no one company likes to stand alone in this!
