In an announcement by the U.S. Food And Drug Administration (FDA), Proctor & Gamble voluntarily recalled certain dry pet foods that the company believes may have been contaminated with Salmonella. Though no Salmonella-related illnesses have occurred as a result of the possible contamination, the company is taking every precaution to make sure that your pet is safe.

Salmonella infections are caused by intestinal bacteria that escape the body and somehow contaminate food and water sources. In dogs, depending on the severity, Salmonella infection will manifest itself in symptoms like lethargy, diarrhea, weight loss, and dehydration. Similarly, in cats, those infected with Salmonella may show symptoms of fatigue, diarrhea, weight loss, and dehydration — along with abnormally fast heart rates and mucus in their stool. If your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms, contact your veterinarian.

The recalled food is limited to products made during a 10-day period at a single Proctor & Gamble location. Routine testing found that some of the Iams and Eukanuba pet food products were vulnerable to contamination.

Consumers using any of the products listed below are encouraged to discard them and contact Proctor & Gamble via its websites or, or via toll-free phone to 800-208-0172.
