Pet Food Recall 39 States
Published: May 9, 2012
Pet Food Recall 39 States, A pet food recall for dogs has expanded to 39 states over salmonella concerns. The batches were made by Diamond Pet Foods, according to the Federal Drug Administration (or FDA).
While the first dog food recall began last month, it has expanded a number of times. As more tests are done for contaminated animal food batches, experts discovered that more states were involved than previously thought, citing a report from the Christian Science Monitor. Now a total of 39 states are included in the pet food recall.
The concerns are over the spread of salmonella. And while there have been no reports of dogs getting sick from exposure to the tainted dog food, there have been at least fourteen cases of human exposure. Most of those stricken said they were in contact with their dog’s food before they became ill.
According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (or CDC), the outbreak may have occurred when dog owners handled the food and accidentally transferred bacteria to their own food. However, officials are still investigating the full impact of the pet foods affected by the recall.
Currently, the 2012 dog food recall expansion includes Puerto Rico, areas in Canada, and the following 21 other states: Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, and Virginia.
