Pet Food Recall Due to Possible Salmonella Contamination

CINCINNATI — On August 14, 2013, Procter and Gamble has recalled various types of dry pet food because they could be contaminated with salmonella. The recall includes certain Iams dry dog and cat foods and Eukanuba dog foods. The affected product was sent to retailers across the United States.  All of them were made at a single P&G manufacturing site within a 10-day period.

Pets infected with salmonella may be lethargic, have diarrhea and vomiting. Pets carrying the illness can pass it on to humans.  People infected with salmonella may experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever. Anyone with these symptoms should contact their healthcare provider.

No salmonella-related illnesses from the pet food have been reported so far.

Consumers who purchased a recalled product should stop using it and contact P&G toll-free at 800-208-0172 (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET).

To see whether you have any of the products in your home, see the press release issued by P & G for a list of those product affected.
