Limited recall of Iams and Eukanuba dog and cat foods

Not a question, just a heads-up.


http://finance.yahoo.com/news/procter-gamble-recalling-dry-pet-151930978.html

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Consumer products maker Procter & Gamble is recalling some of its dry food for dogs and cats due to possible salmonella contamination.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
Procter & Gamble Co. said that the recalled products include certain Eukanuba foods for both puppies and adult dogs, and some Iams puppy and adult dog foods and kitten and adult cat foods. The products were made during a 10-day window at a single manufacturing site.
For a list of the specific types of food recalled, visit www.eukanuba.com or www.iams.com .
If their food is contaminated, salmonella can affect not only the pets that consume the tainted products, but also the owners who handle the tainted kibble.
Pets with salmonella may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets will have only a diminished appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. Owners whose pets display symptoms should contact their veterinarians.
Salmonella symptoms in humans include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. In rare cases, there can be more serious ailments such as arterial infections, endocarditis or heart infection, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms. Anyone with symptoms should seek medical treatment.
Consumers who have any of the recalled products should stop using them and throw them away. Consumers are also advised to contact Procter & Gamble at 800 - 208 - 0172 or at www.iams.com or www.eukanuba.com.

  • Thanks for the heads up. Luckily I don't buy those brands. But I hope no one's pets gets sick from it. Those are both pretty popular brands.

  • Yeah. I used to feed my dog Iams, before she got allergies to everything. I figured I'd put the word out here I cas anybody else used those brands.
