Honest Kitchen recall

The reason is the slight possibility of salmonella in the parsley which although not great it's not that much to be concerned about. Due to the vet acidic pH in a dogs system ecoli and salmonella almost never affect dogs unless they are severely immunocompromised. I feed raw and fed raw for almost 2 decades and I can almost guarantee you my dogs probably got salmonella bacteria in their sustems perhaps even ecoli, without affect. Just thought I'd say it really isn't anything to be concerned about

Perhaps, I think it would be very unlikely considering how far down the parsley is on the list and how not all of it was infected

Why wouldn't someone wash their hands after feeding their dog/cat? I feed the dogs/cats while they eat I wash dishes then their bowls and put everything through the dish washer.

Thanks for the info.

I'm sure that most people do, but obviously the company can't take the chance in assuming that everyone does. No matter how miniscule the risk, companies have to put the info out there.

I make a heck of a mess with Honest Kitchen, lol. It gets all over everything, so I appreciate the warning to be super attentive to it.

Honest Kitchen recall

Yea it's a liability issue, If I fed honest kitchen it wouldn't affect me to continue feeding honest kitchens contaminated batch in a circumstance where I had to purchase a new bag or drive a long way. The only time this wouldn't be the case would be in a severely immunocompromised dog.
