The department says lab samples from two retailers in MI tested positive for Salmonella, but it did not name the retailers.

At least one recall is following behind the July 3 announcement that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and several states are investigating contaminated pig ear dog treats that are likely responsible for a multistate, multidrug-resistant Salmonella outbreak.

"Officials from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development gathered pig ear dog treats at retail locations where ill people reported buying the products".

"It's not clear why some brands of pig ears have tested positive for Salmonella and others have not".

Samples of the treats from those two retailers tested positive for salmonella at an MDARD lab.
