Symptoms in humans may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. Pets may exhibit lethargy, diarrhea, fever, vomiting, decreased appetite, and abdominal pain.
It's crucial to note that children, the elderly, and individuals with compromised immune systems may be at greater risk of Salmonella infection. Pet owners should remain vigilant, especially if their pets show any signs of illness after consuming the recalled products.
