Pets that have been infected with Salmonella may show signs of lethargy, diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. They may also have a decreased appetite and abdominal pain. Pets can be carriers of Salmonella and infect other animals or humans.

Pets that show symptoms of Salmonella infection should see their veterinarian.

Salmonella can also infect humans that handle the dog food as well as pets that eat the food. Salmonella infection in humans can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. In some instances, it can also cause arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms.

Individuals that experience signs of Salmonella infection should contact their healthcare provider.

Sunshine Mills discovered the potential dog food contamination after a sample was tested by the Georgia Department of Agriculture. The Alabama-based company said there have been no reports of adverse effects from the recalled dog food in pets or humans. The company said no other dog foods are involved in the recall.
