Parent company Procter & Gamble has issued a recall of several lots of Iams and Eukanuba dry pet food that could be contaminated with salmonella and were distributed nationwide. So far, no illnesses have been reported as a result of the recall.

“The affected product was distributed to select retailers across the United States,” a statement on the Food and Drug Administration’s recalls website reads. “These products were made during a 10-day window at a single manufacturing site. P&G’s routine testing determined that some products made during this timeframe have the potential for Salmonella contamination, No other dry dog food, dry cat food, dog or cat canned wet food, biscuits/treats or supplements are affected by this announcement.”

The affected lots of food have “Best by” dates between Nov. 6, 2014, and Nov. 14, 2014.
