The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently recalled two other pet food and treat products because of the possibility of salmonella contamination.
Specific units Nutrisca Chicken and Chick Pea Recipe Dry Dog Food sold all around the country to brokers, distributors and retail stores were recalled and the same thing happened to Beef Trachea Pet Treat which has 1,500 units pulled out from the market.
Salmonella can negatively affect those dogs that will consume the product and there is also a risk to human beings from handling products that are contaminated especially if they don’t wash their hands thoroughly after having contact with the pet food.
For those who still have the recalled products, the FDA recommends that they stop using them immediately. What they can do is wear gloves, put the pet food and treat in a double bag then throw them right away. They’re also advised to avoid touching the products and if they do, the FDA recommends that they wash their hands thoroughly afterwards.
