Woman eats tainted dog food, foams at mouth

Woman eats dog food, foams at mouth
OTTAWA, March 27 (UPI) -- An Ottawa woman trying to trick her terrier into trying a new kind of food ate it herself and developed symptoms, including foaming at the mouth, of illness.

The stunt-gone-wrong began earlier in the month before a North American recall of moist pet foods was issued, but Elaine Larabie suspects she and her new 1-year-old pet, Missy fell victim to tainted food, the Ottawa Citizen reported Tuesday.


She said once her dog started eating the food, she stopped, but both fell ill, and for three days she experienced foaming at the mouth, problems urinating, vomiting and loss of appetite.


The dog required veterinary care but will recover. Larabie is awaiting lab results from her hospitalization, the newspaper said.


Larabie said when she contacted Iams, the company confirmed the food she and the dog ate was affected by the recall and likely was contaminated with rodent-killing chemical sprayed on Chinese wheat. She said the company assured her they will cover her medical bills and she hasn't decided yet whether to sue, the Citizen said.

What medical bills? Free healthcare up there right, or are there major stipulations to what they cover and what they don't? :-?

Lawsuit would be interesting though seeing as how the food never should have been consumed by a human. :-?

I think this is why most packages of dog food say "NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION."

Seriously... people. Don't eat dog food.

You know she was snacking on it too like it was delicious. Try to get her dog to eat it my butt... in fact, wasn't all the tainted dog food in cans? The wet stuff? This wasn't kibbles 'n bits she was chomping on, this was gross, runny, wet, dog food.

Haha, and it's hilarious.

Same here, wet, dry, whichever. I have never eaten the stuff.

At least since I was old enough to remember. :-b
