Proter and Gamble issued a voluntarily recall of two specific lots of a prescription-only renal cat food that is sold by veterinarians. The food could be tainted with salmonella.
The following products are included: Iams Veterinary Formulas Feline Renal food 5.5 lbs, lot code 01384174B4, UPC code 0 19014 21405 1; and lot code 01384174B2, UPC code 0 19014 21405 1.
The product is available by prescription from veterinarians. No illnesses have been reported, but an FDA analysis yielded a positive result on the lot codes listed above.
To find the lot code, look in the lower right corner on the back of the bag.
Consumers who have purchased dry cat food with these codes should discard it.
Pets with salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.
