More specific details are available to the recall issued on August 29, 2010 and the recall has been expanded to cover more US States.


P&G Voluntarily Recalls a Small Amount of Dry Iams Proactive Health Indoor Weight & Hairball Care Dry Cat Food

Company Estimates Fewer Than 60 Bags Purchased

Company Contact:
Jason Taylor, P&G
513-622-3205

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – August 31, 2010 – CINCINNATI, 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:

Product Name

Iams Indoor Weight Control with Hairball Care dry cat food


Version

6.8 lb bag



Code Date


02304173 (B1-B6)


UPC Code

1901403921


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).

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.

Thanks L4H I hate it when I read these recalls and feel everyone should know about them. At least these companies seem to be more on top of problems with their food than before 2007 but it really makes you wonder about any commercial food.

I keep thinking about that massive egg recall in the US with egg products in a lot of the commercial pet food. Makes me wonder if that's where the returned eggs are going to end up? That's a really scary thought for those in the US
