Pig ear dog treats have given 143 people Salmonella infections, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Thursday.
It's not clear if pet owners might given the treats a try themselves, but the CDC says that people can contract the infection simply from handling pig ears or even from touching dogs that have eaten them.
Of the 143 people sickened, 33 have been hospitalized, but there have been no related deaths.
