Health Tip: Keep Pet Food Safe

(HealthDay News) -- Fido or Fluffy deserve the same confidence as you do -- that their food will be safe to eat.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration suggests these tips for safe handling of pet food:

  • Before and after touching pet food, wash hands thoroughly for 20 seconds with soap and warm water.

  • After each feeding, clean all pet food and water dishes and any feed scoops with soap and hot water.

  • Scoop food out of containers with a clean, dedicated scoop.

  • Discard any spoiled or old pet food by placing inside a tied plastic bag.
