Eukanuba And Iams Cat And Dog Food Recalled Due To Possible Salmonella

An entire lot of Iams and Eukanuba kibbles for cats and dogs has been recalled because of possible contamination with Salmonella bacteria. Routine tests turned up traces of it, and the company is voluntarily pulling all food manufactured during a 10-day window because it just might be contaminated.

Signs of infection to watch for in your pet include diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, vomiting, loss of appetite, lethargy, fever, and abdominal pain. Pets can be carriers and transmit the infection to other animals, including humans, so be careful when cleaning up that diarrhea if your pet gets sick.

The effects of infection can be worse for humans, who don’t have to munch on kibble to get sick. Just handling food without washing one’s hands afterward is enough to get Salmonella nasties in your system. Symptoms to watch for include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. Call your health care provider.

You can get a full list of the recalled varieties from the FDA or from P&G directly.
