SYMPTOMS

Pets enduring a salmonella infection may be lethargic, experience a decrease in appetite, and have diarrhea or bloody stool. They may also develop a fever or vomit. Any pet owner observing the symptoms described above should contact a veterinarian.

The disease is also transmissible with pets, to both other animals and to humans.

Healthy people who contract salmonella may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms:

- Abdominal cramping
- Diarrhea or bloody diarrhea
- Fever
- Nausea
- Vomiting

Salmonella can also lead to more serious illnesses, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and issues with the urinary tract. Anyone exhibiting those signs is urged to contact a healthcare provider.

WHAT TO DO

Customers who purchased one of the affected products are urged to stop using it immediately and call 1-800-208-0172 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST Monday through Friday.

Customers can also visit either www.iams.com or www.eukanuba.com for more information.

ABOUT THE RECALL

The recall was announced on Wednesday. So far, no salmonella-related illnesses have been reported and only dry food products in specific lots distributed in the U.S. during a 10-day window are affected.

The recalled product all originated at one manufacturing site, and Proctor & Gamble said routine testing discovered the potential hazard.
