An outbreak of a rare strain of salmonella poisoning linked to dog food has infected at least 14 people in nine states, in the United States.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Diamond Pet Foods produced the dry dog food at a South Carolina plant.

The company voluntarily recalled three dry dog food products in April.
