Health Tip: Avoiding Salmonella From Your Pet

(HealthDay News) -- Just like their owner's cuisine, a pet's food can be contaminated with nasty germs such as salmonella.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests how to help protect your family:

  • Always wash hands with soap and warm water after handling pet food, pet toys or touching pets.
  • Don't allow young children to touch pet food or bowls.
  • Make sure pet food packaging is intact. Never feed pets raw food.
  • Store pet food away from human food. Refrigerate unused moist pet food.
  • Regularly wash your pet's food bowl and water bowl.
  • Promptly dispose of pet waste. Then wash hands thoroughly.
