Can someone with more talent than me post the pictures of the food? Thank you!

[Note-there's something the matter with the way the release displays the photos-one won't open at all.  There is only one Iams Veterinary Formula dry food so we need only this one photo.]

Nuttin at their website about the recall that I can see as of my visit there just now.  And when they had their last recall in June for thiamine problems, they announced it mid-week, contacted pet blogs, put it at their site, etc.  So far with this recall, its not being handled the same... Huh

This is not on the FDA site, and not on the IAMS site, that I can find.

It particularly bothers me, because you can easily buy this food on the web, and you don't really need a "prescription" - one usually checks a box that says something like, "My vet has recommended this food".  I have ordered it online.

FWIW department: Go to the Iams company website, iams.com, search "renal diet recall", and
then search again for "highest match" and a customer survey pops up. Let Iams have it. Shocked

There is nothing on FDA, and what's on P & G is both not easily found and mistitled:  Angry

http://media.iams.com/iams/en_US/data_root/html/recall_message.html

Posting the information on this current recall that's at Iams in its entirety:

P&G Recalls Two Lots of Prescription Renal Diet Cat Food Due to a Possible Health Risk Due to Low Levels of Thiamine (Vitamin B1)

 
CINCINNATI, July 25, 2010 - The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) (NYSE:PG) is voluntarily recalling two specific lots of its prescription renal dry cat food as a precautionary measure, as it has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

 The following products are included:

Product Name   Lot Code  UPC Code
 
Iams Veterinary Formulas Feline Renal 5.5 lbs  01384174B4  0 19014 21405 1
 
Iams Veterinary Formulas Feline Renal 5.5 lbs  01384174B2  0 19014 21405 1
 
This product is available by prescription through veterinary clinics throughout the U.S.

No illnesses have been reported. A FDA analysis identified a positive result on the lot codes listed above. Lot codes can be found in the lower right corner on the back of the bag.

Consumers who have purchased dry cat food with these codes should discard it. People handling dry pet food can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product. Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

For further information or a product refund call P&G toll-free at 877-894-4458 (Monday - Friday, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM EST).

There is still nothing at the main page of their Iams website....and may I add, there is no excuse to not have it there by now, imo.
