P&G Pet Care Update on Pet Food Recall

March 23, 2007

We want to assure you that our Iams and Eukanuba DRY foods are not affected by the recall, and are readily available in stores. These foods are not part of the recall – there are no concerns at all about Iams and Eukanuba dry foods. P&G manufactures Iams and Eukanuba dry foods at our own plants, not at Menu Foods.

This recall affects only a small portion of our “wet” foil pouch and canned products manufactured at the Menu Foods plant in Emporia, Kansas. We have a variety of canned wet food products that are currently available on store shelves that are not affected in any way by this recall.

Because of our concern for pets and their well-being, we took immediate action on March 16 to voluntarily participate in Menu Foods’ “wet” food product recall, and to work with retailers to get the small portion of our “wet” products affected by the recall off all store shelves in the U.S. and Canada.

We understand that the New York State Department of Agriculture and Cornell University believe they have identified a potential cause for this problem, and we’re encouraged by this report. They have not shared any information with us directly. We will continue to work closely with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), American Veterinary Medical Association, and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) who we know will be reviewing this information closely.

Pets are an important part of all of our families. P&G Pet Care employees share your concerns and are firmly committed to you and the health of your pet. We are working hard to respond to your questions, and provide the information and help you need.
