Those states are California, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Wisconsin. The CDC says dogs don't always show that they're not feeling well with a salmonella infection, but they usually have diarrhea and may have blood or mucus in their stool.

People have become infected both when coming into contact with dogs that ate pig ear treats and after touching pig ear treats, according to the CDC. They have identified some strains in the treats, but it is unclear whether those are the same strains causing the infection.

Pet Supplies Plus advised customers who purchased the recalled pig ear treats to discard them.

Only the outbreak associated with this dainty, affected 45 people in 13 States.
