Salmonella in pet treats – again

Phebus and I ain’t making this stuff up. Pet treats and food are routinely contaminated with Salmonella and there are certain inherent risks. My 1-year-old heads for the dog food when she’s in the kitchen and I religiously scrub her hands.

Worse is the risk of cross-contamination.

Pet Carousel has initiated a recall of all Pig Ears and all varieties of Beef Hoof pet treats because the products may be contaminated with Salmonella. The problem was discovered after FDA testing found positive results for Salmonella in pig ears and beef hoof products.??? ???These products were recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.  Salmonella can affect both humans and animals. People handling dry pet food and/or pet treats can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the treats or any surfaces exposed to these products.
