A pet food recall in multiple U.S. states has owners checking their supplies and their dogs' safety.

Why Pet Food Is Being Recalled

The latest pet food recall only seems to include dog food. The recall centers on 44-pound bags of dry food.

Details released by the FDA explained there is a potential for "loose metal pieces" to be found in the bags of food. While that sounds scary, the administration said there have yet to be any reports of injured or ill pets who have ingested the contaminated food.

There also has yet to be any information on how loose metal pieces ended up in the food.
