Eukanuba, Iams dry dog and cat foods recalled


The maker of Eukanuba and Iams pet food has announced a voluntary recall of multiple types of dry dog and cat food for possible salmonella risk.

Proctor & Gamble says the lots represent .1 percent of total production  during one 10-day period, but they are removing the bags from the shelves as a precaution.

There have been no reports of pets or humans sickened by the food. The products were distributed to pet stores mainly on the East Coast.

Pets with salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

The infection can also be transmitted to humans who handle the food and do not wash properly afterward.
