The department did not identify a specific brand, but rather said the advisory is for pig ears sold in bulk "at retailers statewide".

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development collected pig ear dog treats from retailers that were reported to have bought the products from. Needless to say, after handling pig ears or other pet treats and food, dog owners are advised to always use soap and water to thoroughly wash their hands. We have pulled bulk pig ear product from the shelves at all of our stores and have stopped shipping bulk pig ears from our Distribution Center.

"It's not clear why some brands of pig ears have tested positive for Salmonella and others have not". We are working with the FDA as they continue their investigation as to what caused the reported Salmonella related illnesses.

They're, in fact, so popular among the growing number of dog owners in the U.S. that fancy recipes for preservative-free smoked pig ears for your pup are popping up online. Prepackaged pig ears sold in MI don't appear to be affected at this point. Tests have shown that salmonella bacteria extracted from the infected people have close genetic relations, suggesting this outbreak is linked to a common source of infection, according to the CDC.

Further instructions included not letting pets lick one's mouth or face after it eats pet food, not letting pets lick open wounds or areas with broken skin, and never letting children younger than 5 years old touch or eat pet food or treats.
