Six pet foods recalled because of Salmonella

NEW YORK - Since March, there have been six pet food recalls according to the Food and Drug Administration’s website. Numerous brands have been affected. Veterinarians from BluePearl Veterinary Partners want people to ensure the food they are feeding their pets is safe.

"We want to make sure that people are aware of these recalls and taking the information seriously," said Dr. Neil Shaw, chief medical officer of BluePearl Veterinary Partners. "One of the ways we intend to help is by educating the public and encouraging people to talk with their family veterinarians about the most recent recalls."

In all of the recent recalled products, Salmonella was the present factor responsible for the recalls. Salmonella presents a health risk to humans who handle contaminated pet products.

Common symptoms of salmonella in pets include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, lethargy, fever and abdominal discomfort.

Formed in 2008, BluePearl Veterinary Partners employs over 1,350 people including more than 350 veterinarians.
