In the latest round of dog food and treat recalls, three companies are pulling their products from shelves.
All announced this past weekend, the companies are concerned about possible listeria or salmonella contamination. Both can wreak havoc on a dog’s health.
If a dog gets salmonella, she may experience fever, shock, anorexia, mucus in stool, vomiting and diarrhea, to name a few symptoms.
As for listeria, not all dogs have symptoms. Those who do, may experience diarrhea, vomiting, fever, muscle aches, nausea, a stiff neck and instability. It can also be fatal.
Here are the companies that recalled their products and what steps you should take.

The company reports that the listeria was contained in a batch of 94 cases that went to California, Washington, Texas, Georgia, Rhode Island and Michigan.
