Salmonella Advisory Warning

Most, if not all, reptiles carry salmonella bacteria in their intestinal tract and intermittently or continuously shed these bacteria in their feces. Salmonella bacteria usually do not cause any illness in reptiles, but can cause serious illnesses in people.
Salmonella bacteria are easily spread from reptiles to humans. Humans may become
infected when they place their hands on objects, including food items, that have been in contact with the stool of reptiles, in their mouths.
Please refer to the ARAV at
http://arav.org/salmonella-bacteria-reptiles/ or the CDC at https://www.cdc.gov/features/salmonellafrogturtle/index.html for further information.
