This makes two salmonella dog food/dog treat recalls in two business days and six salmonella dog food/dog treat recalls in the last 18 days.

Following multiple recent recalls, 3 more raw dog foods and treats have been recalled voluntarily due to possible contamination with Listeria and Salmonella.

Affected products show the number: "Lot # 20190514 13753", according to the FDA.

People infected with salmonella should monitor themselves for nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.

Trump added amid a tweetstorm in which he suggested that some teachers be armed as a "great deterrent" to wannabe school shooters. The auto rental company Hertz and Symantec Corp., the software company that makes Norton Antivirus technology, did the same.

As of the posting of the recall notice, no pet or human illnesses had been confirmed in relation to the Northwest Naturals dog food.

The second voluntary recall is for Northwest Naturals' 5-pound frozen chicken and salmon pet food chubs, which are feared to be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, according to the FDA.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Just like listeria, salmonella can cause humans to become ill if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after contact with the product. The recalled product is 1 isolated batch of 94 cases that was distributed to specialty pet retail stores in California, Washington, Texas, Michigan, Georgia, and Rhode Island.

Carnivore Meat Company, of Green Bay, Wisconsin, has recalled 73 cases of its Vital Essentials Freeze-Dried Beef Nibblets Entrée for Dogs due to possible Salmonella contamination. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. The recalled products were distributed through independent US retailers, Chewy.com, and Amazon.com. If your pet is exhibiting any signs of illness, take them to a veterinarian as soon as possible. Consumers who have purchased the recalled product are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a refund. The product was distributed in the continental US through independent retailers and online at Chewy.com and Amazon.com. For further questions, consumers should call TruPet at 800-476-8808.
