A warning now for all you pet owners out there; several major dry dog food brands are now being recalled.

This comes after a salmonella outbreak, where at least fourteen people have gotten salmonella from touching the food or having contact with animals that ate the food.

Five people became so sick they had to go to the hospital; thankfully no deaths have been reported yet.

At least twelve brands of Diamond Pet Food are affected. To see if your dog's food is on the recall list, click the link below.

Recall Information

The next item being recalled is a riding lawnmower.

Thousands of ExMark Quest 42-inch ZRT riding mowers are being recalled because sometimes the controls don't work properly, which could cause you to crash.

18 crashes have been reported so far, but no one was seriously hurt.

If you bought yours between March 2009 and April 2010, it could be on the recall list; contact an ExMark dealer and they'll fix the problem for free.
