Pet Food Recall and Almost Friday!

There is an Ozzie alert on contaminated pet food that has affect human in 9 states. It is for a brand called Diamond Pet foods. Here are the details:

 Diamond Pet Foods is pulling nine brands and WellPet LLC is recalling one as a precaution. 

At least fourteen infected people had contact with dogs or dog food a week prior to them contracting an illness identified as Salmonella.  Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, cramping and fever. To date – no deaths have been reported. 

Cases so far have been in Virginia, Ohio, Connecticut, Michigan, Alabama, Missouri, North Carolina, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. 

These products were sold to 16 states in the US East coast and Canada. See the link below from Diamond Pet Foods for more information.

As a precaution when serving food to your pooch one should wash their hands afterwards. Salmonella may not always affect dogs, since food moves quickly through their digestive systems but it can make their owners pretty darn sick.
