Warning!! Proctor and Gamble has announced a recall of its Eukanuba and Iams brands of pet food because of the potential for contamination from salmonella. Pet owners as well should be aware that touching the tainted food and not thoroughly washing their hands could infect them as well.

Although the percentage of cat and dog food recalled represents only 0.1 percent, the food has been distributed around the country. If you purchased either product with the "best by" date the first two weeks of November, 2014, discard the product and contact Proctor and Gamble at (800) 208-0172 or go online to or to report the purchase.

If your dog or cat displays symptoms of lethargy, diarrhea, fever, and vomiting you should contact their veterinarian immediately. If you suspect you may have come in contact with a tainted product you will display similar symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramping. You should contact your doctor for a course of action for your recovery.
