March 2013 – According to a news bulletin just discovered by our staff and published by PetSmart on its website some time earlier this month…
“Proctor and Gamble has issued a voluntary market withdrawal of Iams Shakeables Turkey and Lamb Dog Treats with certain ‘Impacted Lot Numbers’ listed below. These treats are being voluntarily withdrawn due to potential for mold growth.”
According to the retailer, no other products are affected. Proctor and Gamble claims it has not received any reports of human or pet illnesses.
What Products Are Being Withdrawn?
To identify the affected lots, consumers should refer to the first 4 numbers of the second line on the bottom of the can.
What to Do?
The bulletin warns users to stop feeding the affected products and to return any remaining Iams Shakeables Turkey and Lamb Dog Treats affected by the voluntary withdrawal to their closest PetSmart store for a full refund.
Readers with questions about this event are invited to call Proctor and Gamble (Iams) at 877-894-4458.
