Government Warning: Dog Food Linked to Illness in Small Children

Pet food tainted with Salmonella may be making kids sick, a government report warns – detailing the first known salmonella outbreak in humans, mostly young children, linked to pet kibble.  The outbreak sickened 79 people; almost half of them children.

    Oh, that’s great. Bad pet food not only making pets sick but kids too.

    We run a Boarding Kennel and to this day people bring in filthy dishes for their dogs to use. We always use our spotless stainless steel ones instead.
    Filthy crates too!

    I’m just wondering why kids are being fed pet food…….

    Good hygiene is just common sense, right? Mom cleans our bowls after every meal, and the little grandbipeds are not allowed near our food or water bowls. Very sad to see this report.

    And Delta wants to stick to their claims about therapy dogs not being safe if they eat raw! Good grief! I hope that these pet food problems settle down soon! It’d be my luck that I’d be the one to get sick from the dog food if it was tainted!

    Clearly Delta needs to ban kibble-fed dogs from their therapy program.
