Dog, Cat Treats Recalled After Humans Infected

Six types of dog and cat treats marketed by TW Enterprises of Ferndale, Wash., were recalled Wednesday after reports of infections in humans of an illness called "Salmonella Thompson."

The items were distributed in the United States and Canada under the TW Enterprises and the Aron Pet Food names. TW Enterprises says five cases of infection developed among people who handled the pet treats — three in Canada and two in the United States.

The products include “Salmon Snackers,” “Shrimp Snackers,” and “Healthy K9 Beef Jerky.”

The company said consumers should not feed the treats to their pets but should instead dispose of them.
