Consumer products maker Procter & Gamble is recalling some of its dry food for dogs and cats due to possible salmonella contamination.  No illnesses have been reported to date.

Salmonella can affect not only the pets that consume the tainted products, but also the owners who handle the tainted kibble. 

Pets with salmonella may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some pets will have only a diminished appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. Owners whose pets display symptoms should contact their veterinarians. 

Salmonella symptoms in humans include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. In rare cases, there can be more serious ailments such as arterial infections, endocarditis or heart infection, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms. Anyone with symptoms should seek medical treatment. 

Consumers who have any of the recalled products should stop using them and throw them away. Consumers are also advised to contact Procter & Gamble at 800-208-0172 or at or 

P. S.  I checked my bags of IAMS and my bags start with 972.  The Iams recall bags all start with 318 or 319
