If you’re a pet owner and purchase your food from retailers, it’s important that you keep your eyes and ears open for pet food related news. To that end, one of the most common pieces of news that’s relevant to pet owners is a pet food recall. While it’s not a common occurrence, recalls do happen, and you need to be aware if they affect you or not. If you’re a bird owner, be particularly aware of salmonella outbreaks.

Salmonella, after all, is one of the most common problems that can occur within bird food varieties. This issue is particularly serious, because salmonella can actually prove fatal in certain birds. If you find that your bird is reacting strangely in any way to a new food, discontinue the use of the food immediately. If the bizarre or erratic behavior continues, take him or her into the vet as soon as possible.
