Hi!

I recieved the following letter from my Pet Insurance company. I know that several have already alerted everyone to these recalls but I thought it would be nice to have them all listed in one post. I hope none of our dogs are affected by this mess!

Hello there,

I'm not sure if you are aware or not, but there have been numerous pet food recalls over the last week or so that I think you should know about. The recalls are due to a potential Salmonella contamination and involve many brands. I thought I should alert you to the details of the recall in case it affects you or other pet lovers you know.



Here's a current list of brands involved in the recall:
4Health
Apex
Canidae
Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul
Country Value
Diamond
Diamond Naturals
Kirkland Signature
Natural Balance
Premium Edge
Professional
Taste of the Wild
Wellness

If you use any of the above brands, please click the link for brand-specific recall information from the FDA, including production codes and expiration dates. If you have recalled food, stop use immediately and consult your veterinarian and doctor. (***Links did not transfer from my e-mail I added FDA link below***)

Since the recalls are being updated frequently, check the FDA website frequently for new recall updates here. http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/?_cld ... Bhb2wuY29t

Salmonella in Dogs


Symptoms may include decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans.



Salmonella in Humans


Individuals handling dry pet food can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.

If you would be so kind as to share this email with your friends and family who have pets, I would be very grateful.
