Salmonella can sicken dogs eating this product. Symptoms may include lethargy, diarrhea which may be bloody, fever, and vomiting. Infected but otherwise health dogs can be carriers and can infect other animals or people. If your dog has been ill, see your veterinarian.

People can get sick from contaminated pet food in several ways. Dogs can shed the bacteria in their feces, which can contaminate their coats and the surrounding environment. Or if a person handles the food and doesn’t wash their hands properly, they could get sick. Human symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning include a fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea that can be bloody.

If you purchased this dog food, stop feeding it to your pet. You can throw it away in a secure garbage can after first double bagging it so other animals can’t access it. Or you can take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling this product. And disinfect your pet’s bowls and any containers that may have held the pet food before reffilling them.
