      Dog, Cat Treats Recalled After Humans Infected

      After Humans Infected,"

      WASHINGTON -- Six types of dog and cat treats marketed by TW
      Enterprises of Ferndale, Wash., were recalled Wednesday after reports
      of infections in humans of an illness called "Salmonella Thompson."

      The items were distributed in the United States and Canada under the
      TW Enterprises and the Aron Pet Food names.

      In a statement distributed by the federal Food and Drug
      Administration, TW Enterprises says five cases of infection developed
      among people who handled the pet treats -- three in Canada and two in
      the United States.

      The company said consumers should not feed the treats to their pets
      but should instead dispose of them.

      The organism can cause serious infections in small children, frail or
      elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy
      people may suffer only short-term symptoms, such as high fever,
      severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, but
      long-term complications can include arthritis.

      The company identified the recalled products as:
