Press Statement: Geneva, March 19, 2007
Recent Menu Foods Inc. nationwide recall of cat and dog wet food products in North America has no connection to South Africa and products found in South Africa.
All Iams and Eukanuba cat and dog consumer products available in Europe, Middle East and South Africa are safe.
Iams and Eukanuba products sold in Europe, Middle East and South Africa are not affected by the recent voluntary recall of cat and dog wet food products announced by the P&G Pet Care North America.
All Iams and Eukanuba wet and dry consumer products sold in Europe are manufactured in the European facilities and our wet Eukanuba Veterinary Diets manufactured in the US are produced in a different plant which is not affected by this issue.
P&G Pet Care in North America is taking this proactive step out of an abundance of caution, because the health and well-being of pets is paramount in the mission of Iams and Eukanuba. This voluntary action is part of the wider Menu Foods Inc. recall of over forty different brands of cat and dog products in North America. The problem is not clear at this stage; however a number of brands have taken the proactive precautionary step of removing any of their products manufactured at this plant from the shelves.
To reiterate none of the South African Iams, Eukanuba or Eukanuba Veterinary Diets products are affected in any way
