Three days ago, K-9 Kraving Dog Food voluntarily recalled their Chicken Patties dog food shipped between July 13th – July 17th, 2015 to the State of Maryland because the products are contaminated with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes. Salmonella and Listeria Monocytogenes affect animals eating the products and a risk to people from handling the contaminated dog food.
Healthy people infected with Salmonella and Listeria Monocytogenes should monitor themselves for symptoms such as: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea (including bloody diarrhea), abdominal cramps and fever. In rare cases, Salmonella and Listeria Monocytogenes can result in serious ailments such as: arterial infections, arthritis, endocarditis, irritation to the eyes, muscle pain and urinary tract infections. Consumers exhibiting these symptoms should contact their healthcare providers.
Pets with Salmonella infections may become lethargic and have diarrhea with or without blood, fever, and vomiting. Some pets could have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Healthy pets could be carriers and infect other animals or people.
