Filed under: Business BlitzHealthDogCrazzzzy

A dog treats company has recalled two of its products due to antibiotic residue in their meats from China.

Nestle Purina PetCare Co. voluntarily withdrew all Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats sold in the United States.

New York's state agricultural department found the residue, which is legal for poultry in China but it is considered adulteration in the States.

Nestle Purina was sure to call it a "withdrawal" instead of a "recall" to make sure pet owners knew it is still technically safe to eat the products.

Bedbugs Found In Canadian Hospital Beds With Drug-Resistant Disease

Filed under: HealthScience!

Bed Bug disease

Yuck!

A study released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Emerging Infectious Diseases has found 5 cases of bedbugs in a Vancouver, Canada hospital carrying a drug-resistant staph bacteria called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

The preliminary findings do not show that the bedbugs spread the disease, however, MRSA is resistant to several types of common antibiotics and may be deadly if it gets into a patients bloodstream.

Since the tiny bugs can cause itching, then scratching, which may break the skin and leave people more susceptible to these germs, researchers called the discovery an "intriguing finding".

While this news is kind of freaky, the study is very small and preliminary, so more research will be needed.

Researchers are unclear as to whether the bacteria originated with the bed bugs or if they picked it up from infected people.
