A government report released Monday, March 11, by Pediatrics says that African dwarf frogs can carry salmonella. A 2008-11 outbreak sickened nearly 400 people, mostly children. Since these miniature amphibians can live up to 18 years, some linked with the outbreak may remain in U.S. homes. Five outbreak-linked cases occurred last year. No one died. AP Photo
