Pet Food Recall and Salmonella Risks

New articles are circulating the news about the potential dangers of dry pet food (yes, I said dry food) and salmonella.

Recently, several varieties of Eukanuba and Iams pet foods have been recalled due to salmonella dangers.

Pets do not display symptoms of infection, but can still spread the bacteria which can affect the elderly and young children. Those who feed their pets in the kitchen have a much higher risk of becoming ill from contaminated foods.

Bacteria will also multiply on dirty pet food dishes (hope this makes you think twice about how frequently you wash your pet’s dishes!).

To be sure that your household is safe, check the brands of pet food that you keep in your pantry versus the list of recalled pet foods.
