Peer-reviewed articles reported raw pet foods contained bacterial pathogens including Salmonella, L. monocytogenes, Escherichia coli O157:H7 and non O157:H7 STEC. For example, Joffe (2002) reported that Salmonella was found in 80% of the samples of raw chicken dog food diets and in 30% of the stool samples from dogs fed the diets. The FDA/Center for Veterinary Medicine/ Veterinary Laboratory Investigation and Response Network (CVM Vet-LIRN) in collaboration with the Food Emergency Response Network (FERN) conducted a research study and found that among the 196 samples of raw dog and cat food purchased from online stores, 15 were positive for Salmonella (7.7%), 32 were positive for L. monocytogenes (16.3%), none were positive for E. coli O157:H7 and 10 were positive for non O157:H7 STEC (CVM, 2014). Finley (2007) reported that, 50% of dogs fed Salmonella-contaminated raw food diets shed Salmonella in their feces, while none of the control dogs fed Salmonella-negative diets shed Salmonella. In addition, dogs fed Salmonella-contaminated raw food diets shed the same Salmonella serotypes as found in their food. There are published reports of transmission of Salmonella from household dogs or cats with salmonellosis to people that became ill., , STEC (E. coli O157:H7 is a sub-set of STEC) and L. monocytogenes were found among clinical isolates from dogs.,

Dog food and cat food samples - Fromm Family Foods
Both here and elsewhere in the big bad cat food world, I’ve heard people asking why there’s such a deficit of smaller-sized cat food samples. I mean, our cats are picky, finicky eaters; what suits one disgusts another. Why not buy smaller bags, test them out, and then dole out wads of cash for that premium bag of noms?Well, you *can* find free, high quality cat food samples out there, but it’s rare. In my research, many people posted that they get free samples in excess at pet shows. I found some once at a very small pet food store, and the owner was kind enough to provide me with quite a large assortment of freebies. They were big too, definitely enough for a couple of servings.
