Last week Procter & Gamble Co. had to issue a recall on some of their dry pet food range, they have since expanded that recall to include some specialized and veterinary pet food due to a risk of Salmonella contamination. The products affected by this recall will have the dates July 1, 2010 to December 1, 2010 on them.
Some of the pet food products involved in this recall include a range of Eukanuba foods, as well as Iams Veterinary Dry Formulas. All of these pet foods in the expanded recall range are sold in the U.S. and Canada; no wet foods are affected by this recall.
According to Food Product Design, the recall that took place last week warned those who had purchased the 5.5-pound bag of Iams Veterinary Formula Feline Renal could become infected with Salmonella if they touched the pet food and did not wash their hands afterwards.
It is advised that the elderly, children and those with immune system issues should not touch the food at all. For a list of these recalled pet foods and their UPC code visit the Iams website.
