More than 780 million people worldwide lack access to clean drinking water and 2.6 billion don't have access to proper sanitation. For local water technology companies those numbers are a call to action and a major business opportunity.

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.
