The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued recalls and/or safety warnings for dog food products from Raws For Paws Dog Food, Redbarn Pet Products and Smokehouse Pet Products, according to a USA Today report.
The potential contamination is said to not only affect animals that have consumed the food, but also the humans that handle it.
The findings prompted Christofersen Meats Company Inc., manufacturer of Raws for Paws Ground Turkey Food for Pets, to recall all lots of Raws for Paws Ground Turkey Food for Pets that were manufactured on October 12, 2017.
Products from the company like Duck with Vegetable Meals for Dogs and Chicken with Vegetable Meals for Dogs were recalled because they may be contaminated with salmonella, according to the FDA.
The FDA also says it received two reports of human illness from contact with the Minneapolis-based Raws for Paws Ground Turkey Pet Food.
"We believe this was an isolated incident". The recalled pet food was sold in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin as well as online. "We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and wish those affected by illness a speedy and healthy recovery".
Redbarn Pet Products of Long Beach recalled its three-packs of 7-inch Bully Sticks dog chews after the Colorado Department of Agriculture reported that one sample collected from a store revealed salmonella.
"We test every product lot before it leaves our manufacturing plant". This lot code, expiry date 112120ABC, was tested both at our Redbarn lab and by a third-party testing facility. "Those tests were negative for salmonella or pathogens", the company's president Jeff Sutherland said.
The products have case codes of 9900008, 9900009, 9900014, and 9900015.

In addition, lab analysis of closed packages of Darwin's pet food obtained by FDA from Judy on January 24 found Salmonella in the product. One was a cat, but the other animal types have not been disclosed. "Pet owners who choose to feed raw pet food should be aware of the risks associated with these products", the federal agency said.
This issue is of particular public health importance because Salmonella can make both people and animals sick. Symptoms of Salmonella infection can include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps.
Symptoms typically clear up in four to seven days but can require hospitalization in severe cases.
