Natura Pet Products is voluntarily recalling some lots of dry pet food because they are potentially contaminated with Salmonella, according to an FDA press release.

Not only can this impact the animals eating the products, but there is also a risk to the people who are handling the contaminated products. Especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands, according to the release.

The release also states:

“Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.
