LANSING, Mich. — The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control are saying you should get rid of any pig ear dog treats.

That's because they have been unable to find the source of salmonella contamination in the treats.

The outbreak has gotten 127 people sick in 33 states.

The victims either got salmonella from the treats themselves, or from handling sick dogs who ate the treats.

Salmonella causes diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps, and it can kill people with weakened immune systems.
