Nothing yet on the FDA site, but Iams (Procter and Gamble) reports this and the AVMA confirms these cat food recalls.
The following notice was received by the AVMA from Procter & Gamble on Sunday, July 25, 2010:
The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) (NYSE:PG), is voluntarily
recalling two specific lots of its therapeutic renal dry cat food in

situation as soon as possible.
