What do I mean by “rumored”? It’s not official. It’s not on the producer’s website or the FDA’s site. There could be a “yet” at the end of that sentence, however. It has been sighted on pet information and at least one sales site.
Why bring it up, then? The alleged reason for recall can be potentially fatal.
What do I recommend? Stop feeding the food mentioned below. As a precaution, I would not recommend continuing to feed it even if nothing official comes from this warning. I will, however, do a follow-up post if new information becomes available. Shoot me an e-mail through the contact form to the right of your screen with “Iams Recall” as the subject and your e-mail and I will e-mail you future information (for this situation only) directly.
