More Colorado pet owners reported Thursday that their animals have died from symptoms that might be linked to recalled pet food products, a spokesman for the Food and Drug Administration in Denver said.
The FDA also is looking into a small number of reports that pets have died after consuming food that was not included among the recalled products, said Devin Koontz, the administration’s spokesman. More at above link…
Several Unconfirmed Reports of Iams Dry Food Causing Illness
Update 3:30pm: We will be collecting emails over the next few days and release a result early next week. In the meantime, if you believe your pet was sicked by ANY kind of pet food, please contact the manufacturer and/or the FDA.
Original Post: We want to repeat that Iams dry pet food is NOT a part of the recall (it only applies to wet food) but itchmo has been hearing of several independent reports that Iams dry pet food has caused illnesses in at least three independent cases. All three reports of pets getting sick has singled out Iams dry food as the cause.
We’re not sure if this is anything more than just coincidence. But, we haven’t seen other dry food being singled out for illness and we’re curious. If you believe your dog has been sickened by dry food, or know of any reports that say so, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see if we can log more possible cases.
