A kibble sample from Natura Pet has tested positive with salmonella bacteria, forcing the company to recall a wide variety of cat and dog kibbles sold under the California Natural, Evo, Healthwise, and Innova brand names.
Salmonella contamination in kibble is particularly dangerous because most pet owners don’t think about cross-contamination when serving up a bowl. It’s a good idea to wash pet food bowls regularly, and especially to wash your hands after handling pet foods, even in kibble form.
For us humans, the early symptoms of salmonella infection include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever.
Our furry friends may have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting.
The infection can turn fatal in all species, and you should seek medical attention if you or your pet show any of these symptoms.
