Eukanuba, Iams Pet Food Recall
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
The Procter & Gamble Company has voluntarily recalled specific brands of dry pet food because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
The recalled brands include Eukanuba and Iams, both cat and dog food.
The bags range from 2.9 to 40 pounds, and include recipes meant for kittens and puppies, small and large breeds, natural, healthy living, and weight control.
All types of food are dry, with a best by date within November.
The Food and Drug Administration says Salmonella can affect both the animals and the people who come in contact with them:
"Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.
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."
