The peanuts that were used as an ingredient might be contaminated with salmonella. Consumers who handle dry pet food can become infected with salmonella, especially if they don’t wash their hands thoroughly after they touch surfaces that are exposed to this product. Pets that have salmonella infections might develop a fever or abdominal pain or lose their appetite.
