More Salmonella-tainted dog food from Boulder brand has been recalled.  This time it's chicken sprinkles on the food.  If you're like I am, a Salmonella survivor who had dogs that were also sickened, you just avoid poultry altogether, especially in light of the recent incidents of extreme cruelty to the chickens at the Foster Farms plant in Fresno.  Workers were caught horrifically abusing the birds.  Apparently, you have to be a heartless bastard to work in a job like that, but the only sure way to stop these kinds of abuses is to stop eating chicken or feeding it to our dogs.
