Recalled Iams Cat Food Sold In Other States



Published:

Procter & Gamble Co., which pulled Iams Proactive Health Indoor Weight & Hairball Care dry cat food from store shelves in Colorado this week because of salmonella concerns, reported today that the affected product was sold in other states as well.

The recall is limited to 6.8-pound bags with the code date 02304173 (B1-B6) and the UPC number 1901403921. No other Iams pet food products are affected, according to the company.

P&G issued a limited recall Sunday. At that time, the company said it believed that three bags had been purchased in Loveland, Colo.

Today, P&G said the affected product was sold through a single retailer in Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Wisconsin and Wyoming. The retailer's name was not released.

P&G estimates that fewer than 60 bags may have been purchased by consumers. No illnesses have been reported.

Pets with salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Cat owners are urged to contact their veterinarian if their pet consumed the recalled product and exhibits the symptoms.

Humans can become infected, especially if they do not thoroughly wash their hands after having contact with the cat food or surfaces exposed to the recalled product, according to the company.

Consumers who purchased the recalled cat food are urged to discard the product and call 800-862-3332 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday for a product replacement.
