FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- CINCINNATI, July 25, 2010 - The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) (NYSE:PG), is voluntarily recalling two specific lots of its prescription renal dry cat food as a precautionary measure, as it has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

The following products are included:


[U][B]Product Name[/B] [/U]

Iams Veterinary Formulas
Feline Renal 5.5 lbs

[B]Lot Code[/B] 01384174B4

Iams Veterinary Formulas
Feline Renal 5.5 lbs

[B]Lot Code[/B] 01384174B2

[B]UPC Code [/B] 0 19014 21405 1


This product is available by prescription through veterinary clinics throughout the U.S.

No illnesses have been reported. A FDA analysis identified a positive result on the lot codes listed above. Lot codes can be found in the lower right corner on the back of the bag.

Consumers who have purchased dry cat food with these codes should discard it. People handling dry pet food can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product. 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 have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. 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.

For further information or a product refund call P&G toll-free at 877-894-4458 (Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM EST).

Didn't see that you had previously started this thread :o. Thanks for adding the info here, dbg.

No problem at all Luckypenny.:thumbs up With this recall being a very common food used by people it can't be posted enough IMHO. :) Fortunately my guy who is on a renal diet is on Royal Canin Vet food or I'd be really upset and he'd be in deep trouble. :(

The worst part is there is another one today [URL="http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?p=941863#post941863"]Merrick Pet Care Recalls Texas Hold'ems 10 oz Bag (Item # 60016 Lot 10127 Best by May 6 2012) because of Possible Salmonella Health Risk [/URL] :evil: :mad: :frustrated: :censored:
