If a large area is shaved right to the skin, it can disrupt the circadian communication in the hair follicles and cause post-clipping alopecia, sometimes for as long as two years.

The Blues do have faded masks, but Steel doesn't look well or happy in those pics. Chief probably feels threatened about pack hierarchy.

This link mentions that the manufacturing plant has been closed permanently, and that it was the same facility closed for cleaning in 2007, also because of salmonella. (The 2007 closure is mentioned on your FDA link)
