The latest pet food recall comes from Natural Instinct Ltd who is recalling several dog food products containing duck because salmonella has been found in the products. Experts warn that the bug, which can cause serious illness in humans, can be passed from pets to their owners.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said: “In humans, symptoms caused by salmonella are usually fever, diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.

“Infected animals may not necessarily display signs of illness, but symptoms can include diarrhoea.”

Natural Instinct food can be purchased in various different pet stores as well as on their own website.

Owners are warned not to feed their dogs any of the following food.

The FSA added: “If you have bought any of the above products do not use them. Instead, return them to the store from where they were bought for a full refund.

“When handling and serving raw pet food it is always advised to clean utensils and feeding bowls thoroughly after use.

“Some ways dogs can spread the bacteria is when they give people kisses or have stool accidents inside the home. Pet waste from both sick and healthy pets can be a source of infection from people.”

The FSA added: “If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be ‘withdrawn’ (taken off the shelves) or ‘recalled’ (when customers are asked to return the product.”

It comes just weeks after several batches of cat food were recalled over the potential link of a deadly cat disease.

The FSA and the department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs have warned cat owners not to give their pets fry food made on behalf of the brands by manufacturer Fold Hill Foods. 

This is due to an outbreak of pancytopenia, an illness that can be fatal in felines. 

The condition causes a rapid decline in the number of blood cells.
