  P&G Voluntarily Recalls Limited Quantity of Dry Pet Food Due to Possible
  Health Risk

Business Wire

CINCINNATI -- August 14, 2013

The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) has voluntarily recalled specific lots of
dry pet food because they have the potential to be contaminated with
Salmonella. These lots were distributed in the United States and represent
roughly one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) of annual production. No
Salmonella-related illnesses have been reported to date in association with
these product lots.

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.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or
all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea,
abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious
ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain,
eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs
after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare
providers.

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.

This issue is limited to the specific dry pet food lot codes listed below.
This affects roughly one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) of total annual
production. The affected product was distributed to select retailers across
the United States. These products were made during a 10-day window at a single
manufacturing site. P&G’s routine testing determined that some products made
during this timeframe have the potential for Salmonella contamination. As a
precautionary measure, P&G is recalling the potentially impacted products made
during this timeframe. No other dry dog food, dry cat food, dog or cat canned
wet food, biscuits/treats or supplements are affected by this announcement.

P&G is retrieving these products as a precautionary measure. Consumers who
purchased a product listed below should stop using the product and discard it
and contact P&G toll-free at 800-208-0172 (Monday – Friday, 9 AM to 6 PM ET),
or via website at www.iams.com or www.eukanuba.com. Media Contact: Jason
Taylor, 513-622-1111.
