Pet Food Sickened People - Did they eat it? . . .

When I saw this headline for the first time, my imagination ran wild and I wondered if people got sick eating the pet food. It turns out it's more about bacterial contamination, as reported by this MSNBC news article, "Pet food sickened at least 79 people, CDC says Kibble tainted with rare salmonella may still be in homes, agency warns." In a nutshell, the contaminated pet food can make people sick if they handle the pet food, especially the very young and very old, and it causes bloody diarrhea. For this reason, the CDC is telling us to be aware that all dry pet food, pet treats, and pet supplements might be contaminated with bacteria like Salmonella, and that precautions should be taken with all brands of dry pet food, treats, and supplements.
