Well I guess being picky about what we feed our babies has paid off yet again.

That's an interesting recall - for salmonella; my oldest daughter and her DH have a Rhodesian Ridgeback that is fed nothing but a raw chicken diet. They were told that dogs' systems aren't affected by salmonella. Hmmmm, will have to investigate that.

Thanks for passing this info along, Lisa. Looks like most of it are brands from Wal-Mart.

We have been feeding our dogs Wellness from Mother Hubbard form many years now. It's human food grade ingredients, no fillers, and none of the ingredients that are in so many commercial foods. It's more expensive, but we've got 3 little Pugs and the peace of mind is worth so much.

Lisa I am forwarding this to some of my friends who do feed some of these brands, thank you.

I found this little tidbit to read: (not for the weak stomachs)

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Animals can be carriers with no visible symptoms and can potentially infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian

Lisa,

My friend in Massachussets was just about to open a bag of Ol' Roy to feed his Boxer and he found that the numbers on the bag actually matched the recall numbers!

He wanted me to send you a great big thank you and a hug!

Well, here's the thank you and if you ever hit the east coast I owe you a hug!

Cheers!
