Nearly 30 different types of cat and dog food are being recalled by the Procter & Gamble Company because they could possibly be contaminated with Salmonella, the Food and Drug Administration said Thursday.


No human or pet has been reported sick, the FDA says, but says the company is recalling the dry food because it might be contaminated.

?Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products,? the FDA said in a statement.

?Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.?

The recalled lots ? only a fraction of a percent of P&G?s annual production ? include 11 types of Eukanaba dog food, 8 types of Iams dry dog food and 10 types of Iams cat food, all with best-by dates in November 2014.

Any pet food could be contaminated with bacteria that cause food poisoning. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends handling all pet food as if it could be. ?Washing your hands is the most important step to preventing illness,? the CDC advises. ?Wash your hands for 20 seconds with water and soap right after handling pet food and treats, and especially before preparing, serving or eating food, drinks or preparing baby bottles.

There have been several recalls of pet food and treats over the past year or so because of Salmonella contamination, including one in July 2012 in which 49 people were sickened.

I'm looking to adopt a healthy dalmatian puppy. I have been visiting sites like https://dalmatianpuppyplace.com and so far the information has been good. But I need extra advice about their feeding. Are they complicated dogs when it comes to feeding ?
