About Salmonella

Salmonella is a bacterial disease that can affect animals who eat contaminated foods and humans who either eat or handle contaminated foods. 

Pets do not always display symptoms when infected with Salmonella, but they may experience diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, vomiting, abdominal pain, lethargy, and decreased appetite. If your pooch has consumed the recalled food and experiences these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.


People infected with Salmonella can develop similar symptoms, including diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. If you develop these symptoms then check with your healthcare provider immediately.
