The risk from handling contaminated products is high and pet owners are always urged to carefully wash their hand after handling any pet products.
Dogs who become infected with the bacteria may display signs of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever. But not all dogs show symptoms. Some dogs do not become ill but rather, are carriers of the bacteria. Humans may show the same symptoms. Always contact your veterinarian or physician if your pets or you display the symptoms.
