Has anyone ever heard of someone getting sick after handling animal fertilizers? My husband was working in the garden with dehydrated cow manure and probably inhaled particles. He was very sick the next week with flu like symptoms. He ended up in the hospital twice but they cannot find out what it is. The doctor indicated that there wouldn't be any "live" bacteria because fertilizer is processed.
