So much for feeding all Iams products with “complete confidence” like we were told by the Iams rep at Thanksgiving. The company has now issued a limited recall of Iams ProActive Health Smart Puppy dry food (see link for details) for aflatoxin contamination. Note that this is NOT one of the foods Price Chopper posted briefly on its website notifying the public of aflatoxins in some Iams products.
Aflatoxicosis in pets usually occurs when pets consume a food product that was made with moldy corn (although the mold can grow on other grains and peanuts as well). Liver disease and/or death may result. There is no antidote. Read more about aflatoxins and dogs here.
