IAMS pet food recall
Iams has issued a voluntary recall to some of their dry dog and cat foods. Please see statement below and lists of affected products.
Although to date, no health effects have been reported, there is the potential for Salmonella contamination. The affected product was distributed to select retailers across the United States, mostly on the East Coast. These limited products were made during a 10-day window, at one of our U.S. manufacturing sites on a single production line. All retailers have been notified of the affected products and are working to remove them.

Recalls for potential salmonella contamination of commercial pet foods and treats are becoming a more common event; The FDA has reported 14 such recalls just this year so far. For more information, see FDA recalls
The Centers for Disease Control has devoted a web page to tips for keeping people and pets healthy and safe from salmonella.
