Dog owners are being warned after several batches of dog food were recalled due to salmonella contamination that could pose a serious threat to humans.

People have been asked to check the batch number of their dog food and return the contaminated food to the store from which they purchased it.

Salmonellosis, caused by salmonella bacteria, is relatively harmless in dogs, but it can cause life-threatening illnesses in humans if passed on.

Symptoms of salmonella poisoning include vomiting, fever, stomach pain, cramps, and diarrhea.

A notice from the UK Food Standards Agency read: “Dogs Choice UK is recalling a number of fresh frozen dog foods because Salmonella bacteria have been found in the products.

“Therefore, the product may present a potential risk due to the presence of Salmonella bacteria, either through direct handling of pet food, or indirectly, e.g. from bowls, pet utensils or contact with animal feces.

“Point-of-sale notices will be displayed in retail stores that already sell these products. The notice explains to customers the reason for the product recall and tells them what to do if they’ve already purchased the product. “

Products affected by the recall include:

Frozen chicken and beef
Pack size: 500 g
Lot code: 080222 + 2
Best day before: August 8, 2022

Frozen chicken liver
Pack size: 500 g

Dog owners who purchased contaminated food will get a full refund when they return it to the store they bought it from.

The changer continued: “When handling and serving raw pet food, we always recommend that you wash utensils and food bowls after use.

“Consumers should wash their hands thoroughly after handling raw food, dishes, utensils, or after handling pet feces.

“Animal raw food should be stored separately from any other food, especially ready-to-eat food.

“Care should be taken when defrosting to avoid cross-contamination of food and surfaces.”
