Procter & Gamble is voluntarily recalling some of its dry dog and cat foods. The company says they may be contaminated with Salmonella. The affected brands include various types of Iams and Eukanuba.
In a release, P&G says:
These lots were distributed in the United States and represent roughly one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) of annual production. No Salmonella-related illnesses have been reported to date in association with these product lots.
For young children fighting serious illnesses and practically living in a hospital, life can be very ruff, er, rough. Studies show interacting with animals boosts spirits and helps patients heal. Now Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is building a Family Pet Center to reunite long-term patients with the own pets.
The hospital says it is the first pediatric hospital in the country to build such a facility.
