Salmonella in Pet foodProcter & Gamble recently pulled their Iams Proactive Health Indoor Weight & Hairball Care dry cat food formula from all stores in Colorado to address salmonella concerns.

It seems, however, that the contamination may be wider spread. According to Veterinary Practice News:

“Today [9/1/2010], P&G said the affected product was sold through a single retailer in Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Wisconsin and Wyoming. The retailer's name was not released.”

P&G estimates fewer than 60 bags of the potentially tainted dry cat food were sold, and as of this writing, no illnesses have been reported.
