The FDA announced yet another salmonella-related pet food recall, this time of an Iams cat food intended to help control weight and hairballs in indoor cats. From the FDA press release (and no, it's not on the Iams website yet, or if it is, I sure can't find it):
The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) is voluntarily recalling a small number of bags from a specific lot of one of its dry cat food products due to potential salmonella exposure.
No illnesses have been reported, and no other Iams pet food products are involved.
Only one code date is affected by this announcement:
Iams Indoor Weight Control with Hairball Care dry cat food
6.8 lb bag
The company successfully traced and retrieved nearly all of the affected product and estimates that fewer than 60 bags from this production run may have been purchased by consumers.
This production run was sold through a single retailer in the following states: Illinois, New Mexico, Texas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kansas, Wisconsin, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado.
Consumers who have purchased one of these few bags with the specific code date listed above should discard it. For a product replacement or refund, please call P&G toll-free at 800-862-3332 (Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM EST).
