Iams pet food recall

in Pet Food Recall

Update – Monday, November 28: Iams contacted me and told me there is no recall. For more info, see this blog post.


First let me say that I’m posting this (potential) recall with caution. I say that because I have not been able to confirm it with Iams or the FDA.

Price Chopper, an east coast grocery store outlet,  is reporting a recall of some varieties of Iams cat food and dog food. According to their website, the following dry pet foods have been recalled due to aflatoxin:

Iams Original with Chicken Cat Food
UPC 1901403915
Lot Number 12794177D3
size 6.8 lbs.

Iams Original with Chicken Cat Food
UPC 1901410504
Lot Number 12794177I5
size 4 lbs.

Iams Lamb Meal with Rice Dog Food
UPC 1901403735
Lot Number 12794177J4
size 15 lbs.

Reason for Recall:
The product is being recalled due to elevated aflotoxin levels.

Again, I have not been able to confirm this with anyone at Iams yet. I’ve emailed a couple people at Iams though and will post again as soon as I hear something.

Update – Sunday, November 27: As of Sunday 1:30 pm Eastern, Price Chopper has removed the information that was posted on their page. I am still waiting to hear back from Iams on this matter.
