      Company recalls dog and cat food because of possible Salmonella contamination

      The Food and Drug Administration has announced a voluntary recall of some dog and cat food products made by Ohio-based Pro-Pet, LLC.

      These products were distributed in Michigan and other states.

      Salmonella can affect the animals eating the food and the people handling the food.
