(CNN) – There’s a nationwide dog food recall this morning — after 14 *people* got sick with salmonella.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it’s investigating the salmonella outbreak that may be related to products from Diamond Pet Foods.

C-D-C officials say the affected dog food was manufactured at a facility in South Carolina, but the illness has been detected in nine states.

Investigators say it’s possible the people got sick after contact with dogs that ate the food.
The dog food sickened people in nine states including Connecticut, Alabama, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia, between October 2011 and April 22, according to the CDC report. No pet illnesses have been reported.

The recall affects several brands of food manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods.
