A Utah company has issued a nationwide recall for bags of frozen cat food.

Two-pound bags of "Quest Beef Cat Food" are being recalled after samples tested positive for salmonella.

Salmonella can affect animals eating the products.

There is also a risk to their owners after handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands thoroughly.

There were illnesses that have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

Consumers who have purchased the two-pound bags of quest beef cat food are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
