When handling and serving pet feed it is always advised to clean utensils after use.

Consumers should wash hands thoroughly after handling reptiles, pet feed, utensils or after contact with the faeces of animals.

Raw pet feed should be stored separately from any food (especially ready to eat foods). Care should be taken when defrosting to avoid cross contamination of foods and surfaces.

Carefully and thoroughly clean and disinfect any surfaces it has been in contact with, including your hands.
