Salmonella is ALL OVER... yes, good idea to wash after handling treats.

I've had cats allmy life, but never picked up anything form then. Probably due to my Dad's very strict rules about washing your hands after touching the cat, and seperate bowls for the cat, seperate utensils for scooping cat food, etc. If we accidently used a "human" plate to feed the cats, it was tossed out. No cats on the table, counters, etc, and only Dad handled cat litter

Did you ever think, about this food recall, perhaps it was people eating it? perhaps people down on their luck and could only afford pet food? Since it was only humans, no animals, could be

in terms fo treats i generally only use chicken or hotdogs for treats, so i alwasy wash my hands then too cause well its hotdog or chicken juice on me lol.

people forget though that salmonella is literally everywhere (studies have shown theres more salmonella IN your kitchen sink than there is on raw chicken), the risks are there, but, the risks are EVERYWHERE else too...
