A potential Salmonella contamination has resulted in the voluntary recall of dozens of varieties of Eukanuba and Iams dry dog and cat foods.
The recall involves certain lots of Eukanuba dry dog foods and Iams dry dog and cat foods manufactured by Procter & Gamble Company within a ten-day window of time at a single manufacturing site. They were then distributed to retailers across the United States.
All of the products on the recall list have best-by dates occurring in November 2014.
The risk for potential Salmonella contamination was discovered during routine testing of the manufacturing process.
Salmonella can affect humans who handle contaminated food as well as animals that eat contaminated food.
A notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said the recall is a precautionary measure, and that no illnesses had been reported so far.
Consumers who bought a product on the recall list should stop using it and contact Procter & Gamble Company for more information. Their toll-free number is available Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern time at 1-800-208-0172 or they can be contacted online at www.iams.com or www.eukanuba.com.
