The magazine Pet Age had an article recently, Salmonella Cases Rise. It stated that there have been 22 cases of salmonella cases linked to pet food produced by a Diamond Pet Food plant in Gaston, SC. The odd thing about this news? The salmonella cases were in humans! Seriously? Why hasn't anyone asked the question, "Why are these people eating pet food?"
The report quotes the lawyer as saying "the route of transmission to the child is uncertain but that it might have happened through the parents' hands". It went on to point out, quite well, that "people can become infected with salmonella by handling contaminated food ... especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product.
