Of 24 people, the CDC found that 17 either had contact with pig ear dog treats or with dogs who had been fed these treats.
The Centers for Disease Control reported that a total of 45 recent cases of salmonellaoriginated from the treats, affecting people in New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Dakota, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and California.
The FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were both investigating the suspected link between the pig ear treats and human cases of salmonellosis, an infection caused by the bacteria. They have identified some strains in the treats, but it is unclear whether those are the same strains causing the infection. 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.
Officials from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development sampled the pig ears for salmonella.
CDC officials say those who are at risk for being infected should wash their hands thoroughly after handling dog treats, don't let pets lick your mouth or face after eating treats, and keep small children away from the treats.
