Default P&G recalls some Iams ProActive

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/pg-...ood-2011-12-06

Procter & Gamble Co. PG -0.22% said it voluntarily recalled certain bags of Iams ProActive Health Smart Puppy dry dog food, due to detected aflatoxin levels above the accepted limit.

Aflatoxins are toxins produced by mold that grows in nuts, corn, wheat, seeds and legumes. Although they are known to cause cancer in animals, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration allows them at low levels because they are considered unavoidable contaminants and pose little risk over a lifetime in occasional and small amounts.

P&G recalled 7-, 8- and 17.5-pound bags of the Iams dog food with use by or expiration dates of Feb. 5 or Feb. 6, 2013. The company said no illnesses were reported in relation to the affected product, but it was instituting the recall as a precautionary measure.

Pets who consumed the product and exhibit symptoms including sluggishness or lethargy, reluctance to eat, vomiting, yellowish tint in the eyes or gums or diarrhea should be taken to a veterinarian, P&G said.

The affected bags were distributed in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Maine, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia.

Those who bought the product are asked to stop using it immediately, throw it out and contact Iams for a replacement voucher.

No other P&G pet food products are affected by this recall.
