P&G recalls lots of Iams cat food
CINCINNATI Procter & Gamble voluntarily recalled specific lots of its Iams canned cat food in North America for possibly containing insufficient levels of thiamine (vitamin B1).
Cats that were fed these canned products as their only food are at greater risk for developing signs of thiamine deficiency, P&G said, which can cause loss of appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss. This recall is limited to only Iams canned cat food distributed in North America. No other Iams pet food is involved.
Consumers who have purchased canned cat food with these codes should discard it. For further information or a product refund, call P&G toll-free at 877-340-8826.
Report: Ukrop enters prepared foods, baked goods biz
RICHMOND, Va. The Ukrop family may have exited the supermarket business with the sale of the Ukrop’s chain to Royal Ahold subsidiary Giant Food of Carlisle, Pa. — and the conversion of its stores to Martin’s Food Markets — but the family hasn’t given up on food altogether, according to published reports.
The Richmond, Va., Times-Dispatch reported Monday that Robert Ukrop had started a new company, Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods, which makes prepared foods and baked goods.
The company is marketing much of the food through Martin’s Food Markets, as well as to some other chains, though the Times-Dispatch reported that neither Ukrop’s Homestyle nor Martin’s would disclose terms of the deal.
