Dog food sold in Pennsylvania has been recalled due to possible health risks

(WHTM) – Blue Ridge Beef has issued a voluntary recall of a specific type of dog food due to a possible health risk.

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Breeders Choice #2 dog food may be contaminated with salmonella. The FDA was notified of the contamination on October 27 that the dog food tested positive for salmonella.

SAlmonellescan affect animals that eat the products, and there is a risk to people when handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not washed their hands thoroughly, the FDA said.

Symptoms of salmonella include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. Pets with a salmonella infection may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets only have reduced appetite, fever and abdominal pain, the FDA noted.

So far, no illnesses have been reported from the dog food.
