COLUMBUS -- Health agencies are urging people to properly handle pet food after two illnesses in people have been linked to an outbreak of salmonella associated with a dog food recall.

The Centers for Disease Control says 14 cases of human illness in nine states have been linked to the recalled pet food. The two cases in Ohio involve a 74-year-old woman in Franklin County and a 4-month old girl in Morrow

People can become sick by handling pet products contaminated with salmonella or by coming into contact with pets or surfaces that have been contaminated.

Washing your hands before and after handling pet food and treats, after petting or handling pets, or before preparing your own food is the most effective way to prevent illness.
