in Cats, Pet Food Recall

Proctor & Gamble is recalling a very small number of bags of cat food in Loveland, CO due to possible contamination with salmonella.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – August 29, 2010 – CINCINNATI  — Procter & Gamble (P&G) is voluntarily recalling a small number of bags of its Iams Proactive Health Indoor Weight &  Hairball Care dry cat food which may have been sold recently in one or two stores in Loveland, Colorado.

These bags have the potential to contain salmonella, although no illnesses have been reported.  No other Iams pet food products are affected.

The Iams Proactive Health Indoor Weight & Hairball Care cat food in question is sold in blue 6.8-pound bags.  These bags feature a code date of 02304173 (B1-B6) and the UPC number 1901403921.

If you have this product, please discard it and call P&G toll-free for a product replacement at 800-862-3332 Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EST.

P&G has worked with its retailers to remove the affected product from stores in the area.  P&G believes that only three bags may have been purchased recently by consumers in the area.  Yet, as a precautionary measure, the company is initiating this retrieval.

It seems odd that it’s only a few bags in one small area of the country. Will it expand? Who knows at this point.

Prediction: The very small number of bags will soon expand a little bit. Then a little bit more. Then…
