Salmonella in pet food can sicken pets and it can sicken people who handle the food. Pets can shed the bacteria in their feces, which can then contaminate their environment and get on their coats. If people then pet their animals and don’t wash their hands, they can get sick.

Pets with Salmonella infections can suffer from vomiting or diarrhea. Sometimes, cats may not develop diarrhea, but can have a decreased appetite, fever, and excessive salivation. And sometimes pets can be infected but show no symptoms, and still spread the bacteria to others. If your cat has eaten this cat food and has been ill, see your veterinarian.

Human symptoms of a Salmonella infection include a fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal and stomach cramps and pain, and diarrhea that may be bloody. Anyone experiencing these symptoms should see a doctor.
