We are aware that a breeding facility located in Georgia was recently forced to recall their product due to a salmonella bacterial outbreak. According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recall notice “Salmonella can affect animals and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products….Human illnesses that may be related to the frozen reptile feed have been reported in 17 states. The recalled product should not be fed to animals…” As a result, that company must now irradiate their mice and rats in an effort to address the Salmonella issue associated with their products.
Layne Labs, has tested NEGATIVE for salmonella 100% of the time for the last 17 years. Layne Labs is a USDA-licensed facility. Our animals are cleaned every day.
‘Cleaned’ is defined as: All animals are removed from their cage and placed in a clean cage, with clean shavings. At the end of each day, the empty cages are dumped, the shavings composted, and the cages are sent through an extremely high temperature 30′ washer, where they are disinfected. Every day. Just one of the many steps we take to help protect the health and well being of our colony, employees, and customers.
