Human Salmonella Cases Linked to Recalled Pet Food

You can never be too careful. Practice proper storage and handling techniques with the pet foods you use. It will be safer for you and your pets. Store them in a resealable container so insects and rodents cannot get into the food. Wash your hands if you handle the foods directly to prevent the risk of bacterial contamination. Always check the expiration dates of the food and be careful with foods which have short dating. If you have multiple bags of food make sure you rotate the bags so you are always using the freshest foods.

  2. I'm here to testify about what DR. Odoma did it for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 2 years and had constant pain and itching, especially in my private parts. During the first year, I had faith in God that I would be cured someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Shayla Bosschart on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. Odoma on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advising anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him. I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. Odoma prepared and sent me Healing Soaps, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after two weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more itching , pain on me anymore as DR. odoma assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test and the result came out negative. So friends, my advice is if you have such a disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. Odoma for help via email} drodomasolutionhome20@gmail.com or visit his website{ https://drodomasolutionhome.simdif.com/ } whatsapp him through his mobile} +2348100649947
