Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause disease in humans and animals.
The items could pose a risk due to the presence of Salmonella, either through direct handling of pet food or indirectly, for example from bowls, utensils or contact with animal feces.
Symptoms caused by salmonella in humans generally include fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps.
Animals do not necessarily show signs of disease, but symptoms may include diarrhea.
All customers who purchased the affected products online have been contacted and point of sale notices will be displayed at all retail stores that sell them.
