Iams Veterinary Diet Recall

We wanted to inform you that Iams Veterinary Formula dry foods have been recalled. Salmonella has been found inside the factory where their dry veterinary diets are made but not yet found inside or on the actual bags of food. There are NO confirmed cases, with any pets, of salmonella poisoning from this incident. Iams is not sure which, if any, of their foods have come into contact with the salmonella. They have decided it is best to voluntarily recall all foods, just as a precaution.

None of Iams ProActive Formulas, canned foods, or treats are affected by this recall. For more information, please follow the link , to Iams Official Press Release.

Gentle Care Animal Hospital has contacted all clients that have purchased the veterinary diets within the last month. We are working hard to replace our Iams veterinary diets with another premium brand. Until we have it on our shelves we are writing prescriptions for a comparable diet. If your pet is on any Iams veterinary diet, please discontinue feeding it and return the remainder of the food, even if it is not in its original bag, for a full refund.

For further information, please either contact the Iams company directly: 1-877-340-8823, or an educated team member at Gentle Care Animal Hospital, 919-852-4386.
