U.S. FDA warns consumers of Salmonella presence in dog food

If you have  A+ Answers Straight Beef Formula for Dogs from Lot 2018 20/08 20, federal health officials are telling you to throw it away in a secure container where other animals, including wildlife, cannot access it. The company that owns the brand has recalled the affected lot in Nebraska, but has not implemented a nationwide recall. Pet foods contaminated with pathogens such as Salmonella are of particular public health importance because they can affect both human and animal health. Pets can get sick from Salmonella, and may also be carriers of the bacteria and pass it onto their human companions without appearing to be ill, according to FDA. Read more...

The public health alert was first announced a few days before Thanksgiving with a warning for consumers to stay away from all romaine lettuce while a probe was conducted to search for the source of the bacteria.
