Pet Food Recalls, Redux

The latest reminder that pet food processing companies need to manage their risk of food recalls: pig ear dog chews have been recalled for potential salmonella contamination.  This presents a health risk not only to pets, but also to your customers (and their kids, even if they do not eat dog biscuits).

Pet food recalls, like other food recalls, present a recurring problem

Smart consumers should already know they should wash their hands after handling pet food and prevent their children from eating it.  However, should pet food processing companies include a notice on their package to remind people that pet food is only for pets?  Or is this type of warning in the “where does it end?” category?

    I don’t think most people know to wash hands after handling pet food. Thanks for sharing this!
