Dog food, treats recalled for possible salmonella, listeria contamination

Three more dog food products are being recalled for possible salmonella or listeria contamination. This comes just weeks after a massive pet food recall also involving possible salmonella, listeria or pentobarbital contamination. Pentobarbital is most commonly used as a sedative, anesthetic or to euthanize animals.

Salmonella and listeria can harm animals that eat these contaminated products, as well as, humans who handle the contaminated products, especially if they do not wash their hands thoroughly after coming in contact with it.
