As Americans, we love our pets. Millions of people across the nation take pride in caring for their four-legged creatures. Some people even go to extremes and have exotic animals as their pets!

However, in caring for our furry friends we need to make sure we're not putting them in any danger. Sadly, a new dog food recall has just hit the media and has scared millions of owners.

Two more brands have just announced they are recalling their products for fear of sickening, or possibly killing, animals. That makes six total brands that have been affected. The brands believe their food could possibly be contaminated with either salmonella or listeria.

The first recall is for “Treat Me Crunchy Beef Delight” products by TruPet of Milford, Ohio, for possible Salmonella. The product is sold in 2.5-ounce containers. It was sold throughout the country via the online retailer Chewy.com and at TruDog.com through direct delivery, according to reports.

The second recall is for frozen 5-pound chubs of Chicken and Salmon pet food, from Northwest Naturals of Portland, Oregon. The recalled product is 1 isolated batch of 94 cases that were distributed to specialty pet retail stores in California, Washington, Texas, Michigan, Georgia, and Rhode Island, according to reports.

The dog foods have been recalled after reports of five animals, one kitten, and two humans have gotten sick or died from contact with salmonella. The news has rocked the pet food industry.

Recalls have been issued for items manufactured by Arrow Reliance between October 17, 2016, and February 10, 2018. The below products are the food being recalled:

-Smokehouse Four-ounce bags Beefy Munchies

-Raws for Paws Ground Turkey Pet Food

-Redbarn seven-inch Bully Stick three pack

-Arrow Reliance ZooLogics Duck with Vegetable Meals for Dogs and ZooLogics Chicken with Vegetable Meals for Dogs

"However, any detection of pentobarbital in pet food is a violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act—simply put, pentobarbital should not be in pet food. The FDA is investigating to learn the potential source and route of the contamination," according to Gizmodo.

Please stop feeding your animal any of these products and return it as soon as possible for a refund. Also, make sure you know the warning signs of salmonella. According to reports, animals can experience vomiting, diarrhea, fever, loss of appetite, and lethargy, but the real danger is that they can pass on the bacteria to humans after it passes through their body.
