Iams And Eukanuba Voluntary Recall

Recommended Posts

Just posted by our local GPA on Facebook: http://www.iams.com/en_us/data_root/_pdf/8-14-13%20Iams%20Product%20Information%20Dog.pdf (If the PDF link doesn't work, go to iams.com; info's on the lower right.)

 

Unfortunately, it looks like the Iams green bag could be affected.

 

ETA: Doesn't sound like anyone needs to hit the panic button, as no illnesses have been reported yet, but just wanted to pass along the info!

Here is another link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm365154.htm

 

I think most of us here probably buy the bigger bags and are safe (at least as far as green bag Iams is concerned). The risk seems minimal regardless, thank goodness!

We have done well on the "green Bag" I checked my current 30# bag from Walmart 27.99 The code IS listed and the exp date matches recall. My UPC code is different ,however. I called the hot line and left inquiry.

I only see the 15 lb green bag listed; the only 30 lb bag listed for Iams is ProActive Health Large Breed Mature Adult (purple bag, looks like).

Just a caution that many of these recalls are often expanded over time to include a wider range of their food, bag sizes, etc.

Please remain watchful of your hounds reactions to these foods. Watch the manufacturer's Website, and FDA press releases.

Humans should be extra cautious to wash hands thoroughly after handling pet food, and discourage children from handling any recalled foods.

 

Kibble manufacturers recommend storing kibble inside it's own bag for higher safety for our pets. Even when salmonella, e-coli, etc. are not found, kibble oils do become rancid inside reused food storage containers which contaminates new food, and sickens pets. Recommendation for people who transfer kibble from bag into food storage container: Wash storage container with soap and thoroughly rinse with water between every kibble refill. Ensure container is thoroughly dry before adding new food.

This is great advice. Our GSD x grey was having mysterious intestinal issues about every 6-8 weeks, and we finally figured out that it coincided with the kibble in the bottom of the dog food bin, which had gone bad. I felt terrible, and ever since, have fed out of the bag and then thrown the bag away before starting another!

I have to admit I'm guilty of not washing my container out recently... :sofa

 

When the bin is empty I'll most definitely be scrubbing it out. If I can fit it, I'll try keeping it in the bag inside the container.

I just pop the bag inside the container.

That is what I do.

Thank You. I was going to check as my Border Collie eats that food.

I save the old bag until the new bag is finished. Just in case there is a recall on the last bag after I have finished it.
