No deaths have been reported, but a dozen people have been hospitalized.

Officials say a common supplier has not yet been identified.

Experts say make sure you wash your hands right after you handle pet food or treats and to store them away from human food.

Call your vet if your dog starts showing the symptoms of salmonella infection, which include having diarrhea that may contain blood or mucus – or vomiting.
