If you bought any recalled pet foods, make sure to keep them away from your pet and child, or throw those away. And If you have fed them with those, you should contact the vet immediately for further examination, because some of the dogs might not show any symptoms. 
And make sure to change your pet food products, since there are still many pet foods out there that can cause no harm to your beloved pets, or you can make your own food to feed your pets since it’s more healthy and safe.
