Tampa, FL (PRWEB) May 12, 2012
A pet food plant in Gaston, South Carolina was under a salmonella outbreak, a report from ChicagoTribune.com dated May 9 said. It added that more pet food brands also recently joined the recalling of suspected contaminated pet food products. In response, home tips resource website GreenBeanBuddy.com advised pet owners to take precautions to avoid possible contamination.
According to the report, it was the US Food and Drug Administration Center for Veterinary Medicine that aided the identification of the problem. Reportedly, the salmonella outbreak already left 14 people sick. The affected individuals were said detected from nine states.
Reportedly, the Diamond Pet Food plant was the only facility affected by the outbreak. However there were many other pet food products produced in the said plant.
But as it was stated in the report, each of the identified brands already joined the strings of pet food recalls.
Here's a part of a post about Pet Food Recall Expanded from GreenBeanBuddy.com.
“In a pet food plant in Gaston, South Carolina, a salmonella outbreak was discovered. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention is currently investigating the said incident. The plant was identified as that of Diamond Pet Foods. Leaving 14 people in nine states sick, the outbreak led to a nationwide pet food recall earlier this week. And although only one manufacturing plant was determined affected by the said salmonella outbreak, several pet foods were produced in it. And basically, that means there are many other pet food products in the market that could be contaminated.”
