Hundreds of food products containing salmonella-tainted peanut butter have been recalled across the country. The tainted peanut butter is believed to have sickened at least 500 people and killed eight. Now, medical experts are worried that humans are not the only ones at risk.
At least one dog has died as a result of eating the tainted human food products, and many more pets could suffer the same fate as a result of pet treats which may also contain the peanut butter. Fourteen varieties of pet products have now been added to the Food and Drug Administration’s product recall list.
Experts say that outbreaks of salmonella in animals are also potentially dangerous to humans, since animals can easily spread the infection to the people around them by physical contact such as licking or kissing.
