The illness and/or death of your family animal is a serious matter. Should your animal experience any physical illness and/or death from the consumption of a pet food product, then you should investigate if a pet food recall is the reason behind it. The majority of the pet food recalls are caused by Aflatoxin or Salmonella poisoning.
Aflatoxin is a well known toxin and, when ingested by pets, can cause lethargy, sluggishness, anorexia, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, yellowing of the eyes, and liver disease. It can sometimes result in more serious ailments in pets and medical treatment should be sought.
Salmonella can affect both you and your pets.
People infected with Salmonella should be aware of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. It can sometimes result in more serious ailments and medical treatment should be sought. Infected pets can be carriers and infect other animals and humans.
Pets infected with Salmonella may have the following symptoms: lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and/or loss of appetite.
