Pet food recall
Procter & Gamble has issued a voluntary recall of specific Eukanuba and Iams brand dry pet foods because they could potentially be contaminated with Salmonella.
A complete list of recalled pet foods can be found here: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm365154.htm.
So far, no Salmonella-related illnesses have been reported in relation to the products.
The recalled products were distributed to retailers across the United States during a 10 day window. The recall affects less than one-percent of total annual production.
Salmonella can affect pets that eat the food or humans that handle contaminated products, without thoroughly washing their hands after.
People who have handled the products are encouraged to monitor themselves for any symptoms of Salmonella, which can include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramps, and fever. People exhibiting any of these symptoms should talk with their doctors.
Symptoms in pets can include lethargic behavior, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets may also lack an appetite.
Experts warn that healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If a pet has eaten any of the recalled foods, the owner is encouraged to contact a veterinarian.
