The North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services told the company on July 6 that a sample had tested positive for salmonella, WNCN-TV reported.

Salmonella can affect pets eating the products and poses a risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, the FDA said in its release.

No illnesses have been reported so far, the FDA said.
