Multiple batches of two brands of dog food are being recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The FDA says the dog food may contain salmonella, which can affect both pets and humans. Routine testing by the New York State Department of Agriculture showed the presence of salmonella in some of the products affected by the recall. So far, the manufacturers say they have not received any reports of illness in either humans or animals.
