P&G Recalls More Pet Food


NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Procter & Gamble (PG) on Friday evening announced the expansion of a dry pet food recall due to salmonella concerns.

The affected products can be bought at veterinary clinics and specialty pet retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada. They were made in a single, specialized facility, where products have the potential for salmonella contamination.

This is a precautionary measure only; no salmonella-related illnesses have been reported, and no canned food, biscuits/treats or supplements are affected by this announcement.

Still, P&G advises consumers who have purchased the affected pet foods to throw them out. Pets with salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting.

Infected, but otherwise healthy pets, can be carriers and infect other animals or humans.

P&G pet foods included in the latest recall include:
