LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Several pet food manufacturers are issuing voluntary recalls after 14 people in nine states became sick from handling tainted food.

Multiple brands of Diamond Pet Foods from a plant in North Carolina have been linked to some of the Salmonella infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In 2005, the company offered a $3.1 million settlement when dozens of dogs died after eating contaminated food made at the same plant.

The following were the first products to be recalled last month:

– Diamond Naturals Lamb Meal & Rice dry dog food
– Diamond Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light Formula dry dog food
– Diamond Puppy Formula dry dog food

PetFoodDirect.com sent an e-mail to customers Monday saying the recall has been expanded to include all of following brands:

– Natural Balance
– Canidae
– Chicken Soup For the Pet Lover’s Soul
– Country Value
– Diamond
– Diamond Naturals
– Premium Edge
– Professional
– 4Health
– Taste Of The Wild
– Wellness
– Kirkland
– Apex
– Kaytee Fort-Diets
