Procter & Gamble recalled several dozen lots of dry pet food Wednesday due to a risk of salmonella contamination.

The pet food—both dog and cat varieties—was distributed nationwide. Certain types of Eukanuba and Iams foods are included in the recall.

There are not yet any reports of animals or people getting sick from the pet food, Procter & Gamble said in a statement.

Pets could become ill from eating the food, while humans are at risk if they handle the food without properly washing their hands afterward.

Salmonella symptoms in people include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramping and fever. Infected pets might be lethargic and have a decreased appetite, though they may also suffer from diarrhea and vomiting. The infection can transfer between humans and animals.

If you suspect you bought contaminated pet food, call Procter & Gamble at 800-208-0172, or visit www.iams.com or www.eukanuba.com.
