I wonder if any of the pet foods on the shelves are safe? It seems like one company after another is either suspect or recalling food for some reason.

OK so I'm confused.

Raw feeding, particularly of poultry, is considered to be the ultimate in feeding cats, no?

And yet raw chicken and turkey is commonly known to possibly contain salmonella, which is why humans are so particular about thoroughly cleaning surfaces of raw poultry contact, cooking poultry completely, etc.

So...

Is salmonella harmful to cats? Or...not? If salmonella were a big deal you'd think no credible cat expert would advocate raw feeding, but many do.

Should Cats Eat Raw Chicken and Uncooked Meat? – CatLovingCare.com | CatLovingCare.com

"Thankfully, most cats have no problems with bacteria, since their digestive tract is designed to deal with bacteria, even when our bodies cannot deal with it.

WARNING: Raw food carries bacteria in it, that when mixed with dry cat food Kibble (Which slows down catsí digestion), it all ends up staying longer in the stomach, and therefore it could potentially cause bacteria problems.

Ah...so between this, and the possible issues from human contact with the food (handling) the salmonella recall makes more sense.

This is probably the biggest risk of salmonella in cat food and why they recall it. For most cats ingesting it shouldn't be a big issue, that is how I've generally understood it as well.
