UK – Raw pet foods: handling and preventing infection

Gov UK

Some types of pet food, including pet chews or treats, are made of raw meat and other unprocessed animal products. It may not always be obvious that products contain raw meat.

In addition, some pet foods, such as those which are described as being lightly steamed or lightly cooked may not have been fully pasteurised and may still potentially contain harmful bacteria.

People can become unwell after handling raw pet food and treats. It is therefore important to take the correct precautions before, during and after feeding pets.
