Why Is There Concern?

Fleet Wholesale Supply Company is the primary distributor of the brands and found the potential contamination.

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture was informed by the distributor after a 5-pound sample of Sprout Sporting Dog Food was identified as containing Salmonella.

What Is Salmonella?

Salmonella is a highly infectious bacteria commonly found in most reported food-related illnesses in the United States and globally. Both humans and animals can carry salmonella in their intestines in addition to feces. Salmonella often spreads in contaminated foods.

Common symptoms of Salmonella poisoning in humans include:

  • Abdominal cramping
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Upset Stomach
  • Vomiting

Salmonella can cause arterial infections, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and endocarditis in severe cases. Anyone displaying such symptoms should contact their healthcare providers immediately.

Common symptoms of Salmonella poisoning in dogs include:

  • Bloody diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Abdominal pain
  • Vomiting
  • Decreased appetite

If your pet has consumed the above-recalled product and has any of these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian immediately.
