Warning, cute aquatic frogs can infect you with Salmonella
You may have seen cute little aquatic frogs in a tank for sale at the mall, in department stores, card shops, pet stores and the like. Be forewarned, these frogs can carry Salmonella. According to the Monroe (NY) County Health Department, over 200 cases have been reported in 41 states. And that’s what has been reported. Imagine all of the cases that go unreported.
The frogs, known as African Dwarf frogs, have become extremely popular in the past year or so. People think they are cute and low maintenance. The problem is, people clean the tank in their kitchen sink, which can spread the Salmonella. In addition, people let their children handle the frogs and they are not vigilant about washing their hands before and after handling the frogs.
