Having gone to several sites to see what the food companies had to say was interesting. I encourage all people feeding these foods to go on line and actually verify what is being recalled. After reading a post from my co-worker I found a SPOOKED beyond belief dog lover. He got a call from Costco on Saturday regarding his dog's food being a part of the recall. The fact that his dog got sick after starting to feed the last bag purchased and a couple of weeks later Murcie passed away, he is asking all kinds of questions. His wounds have been opened right back up.
True, it may not be related, but he did call the vet to make sure they were aware of what call he got. They spent time discussing what they did test for etc. and his vet as well as the ER vet both said it is not part of their protocol to check for salmonella. He was not so upset that it was not, (he does understand how that stuff works) but is sincerely hoping it is now; especially with the experience they shared in his heartbreak of sweet Murcie.
