Super scary news from Canada:
October 1, 2020 — The Public Health Agency of Canada is alerting consumers it is investigating a deadly outbreak of Salmonella infections occurring (IN PEOPLE) in British Columbia, Alberta, and Yukon.
Based on investigation findings to date, exposure to pig ear dog treats has been identified as a likely source of the outbreak.
Some of the individuals who became sick reported feeding their dog Paws Up! and Western Family brands of pig ear dog treats before their illnesses occurred.
These brands are sold at Canadian Tire and Save-On-Foods.
October 9, 2020
Sunshine Mills has expanded their September recall of potentially elevated levels of Aflatoxin in certain pet food products to include an additional 14 brands with 25 more products.
The additional brands impacted are: Champ, Field Trial, Good Dog, Hunter’s Special, Old Glory, Pet Expert, Principle, Retriever, River Bend, Sportsman’s Pride, Sprout, Thrifty, Top Runner, and Whiskers & Tails.
This appears to still be breaking news. Just read it and hopped on over to share:
