Food-borne illness is no fun for you or your pet. If your dog or cat’s food is contaminated, he can become ill from consuming it and you could become sick from handling it. That’s why it’s so important to wash your hands every time you handle pet food and to stay current on pet food recalls. It’s a good idea to check out the FDA pet food recalls site monthly to make sure your animal’s food isn’t on the list.    

Thankfully, far more pets benefit from their nutritious foods than get sick by them, but it always helps to take precautions. Check out the video below for some simple steps you can take with your pet’s food to help keep you, your family and your four-legged friend safe.
