Recall Contaminated Diamond & Kirkland Pet Foods (Kibble + Salmonella)

Check your pantry, food bin or tubs for certain types of dog or cat kibble that may be contaminated with salmonella. A little over a dozen people have fallen ill in nine states so far. The products under recall are produced by Diamond Pet Foods. Most notable are Kirkland (C0stco) pet foods made by Diamond Pet Foods.

“So how exactly did the salmonella jump from dog-food bowls to the unfortunate folks who came down with the strain? The CDC is still tracking the outbreak, but said there could be a handful of explanations: people touching the dog food, then their own food; contact with bowls or utensils used to serve the dog food that weren’t cleaned properly afterwards; and that old standby, a canine carrier licking their faces.

How to prevent it in your home? Washing your hands frequently and thoroughly with hot soapy water is the best way to fend off any illness. Also wash your hands before and after contact with pet food, including treats; after petting or handling pets (and especially their poop); before preparing your own meals, and before eating them. Children are less able to fight off food-borne illness, so don’t let them near the pet food bowls, and keep an eye on those photogenic dog kisses, which could spread disease as well.

In this case, the easiest preventive measure you can take is checking your pantry for suspect kibble, and getting rid of any recalled brands pronto, then cleaning the surfaces and storage containers it had contact with.” (source)
