Pet Treats Contaminated With Salmonella Recalled

Your pet can infect humans with salmonella, even if their symptoms are mild.

Pet treats made in the U.S. and sold at major retailers, including Costco and Target, are being recalled because of contamination with salmonella.

Federal health authorities warn that your pet can spread salmonella to you and other family members.

If you have the treats, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advises you to throw them away in sealed containers that cannot be breached by wildlife.

Symptoms in Pets

The FDA warns to watch for the following symptoms if your pet has eaten the contaminated treats: Pets with Salmonella infections may become lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets may experience only a decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected, but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed any of the affected product or is experiencing any of these symptoms, contact your veterinarian immediately. As with humans, dogs who are elderly, very young or have impaired immune systems are more vulnerable to Salmonella infection.

Symptoms in People

The FDA warns that you may get salmonella simply from handling the pet treats: Healthy people infected with Salmonella may experience some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Although rare, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments including arterial infections, endocarditis (inflammation of the lining of the heart), arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with the products subject to this recall should contact their health care provider immediately. The elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to become severely ill from Salmonella infection. The bacterium can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in these vulnerable populations. Most healthy individuals recover from Salmonellainfections within four to seven days without treatment.
