The Egg Recall and Dog Food

After checking to make sure our eggs weren't listed in the Egg recall, I also realized that Katie's dog food ingredients contained egg. I already have sent a message to Taste of the Wild, and am awaiting a reply.

May I ask what you all are doing for yourself, your family, and your loved canine for the recalled eggs?

I've read previously read somewhere in this forum that people are supplementing their dog's diet with a raw egg- Are you still feeding raw egg, or temporarily not?

FYI, they are still using those contaminated eggs in human foods. Supposedly once they are cooked they are safe, so they are "safe" to be used in processed food. I would be shocked if they were NOT using them still in manufactured pet foods.

At one point there was a voluntary recall from Nature's Variety because of possible salmonella in their raw chicken patties. I took mine back to the vet where I buy the food and he was happy to replace it, however, he said that healthy dogs should be able to handle salmonella bacteria without adverse reactions. So while I've stopped feeding raw eggs for now, I'm not too worried about the dog's food.

Salmonella is only transmitted through raw or undercooked eggs. You could eat a tainted egg and as long as it was thoroughly cooked you'd be fine. The eggs in dog food are very thoroughly cooked.

I feed raw and am still feeding raw eggs. I just make sure the ones I use are not on the recall list.Dogs aren't normally as bothered by tainted food as people - they have a much shorter digestive tract, which means food moves through faster and bacteria have less time to "cook".

My understanding is that the salmonella is on the SHELL of the egg. We crack it open, the white/yolk touch the shell on the way out and then we eat it sunny side up.

So, wash the egg before cracking it open. Or thoroughly cook it.

I would think that any salmonella in kibble would be killed during processing due to the temperature.

salmonella can also be INSIDE the egg. It's pretty natural in chickens, if they are raised all crowded together. The only way to kill it is cooking. Eggs are washed before being sent to the store - the only way to get rid of salmonella if it WAS on the shell would be bleach. Then, your egg would taste like bleach because chemicals can soak through the porous shell
