Procter & Gamble expanded the recall of Iams dry cat food over potential salmonella contamination and now says 476 bags were put on store shelves at Walmart stores in 14 states after initially claiming they were only sold in one Colorado city, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

Last week, P&G announced a recall of a few 6.8-pound bags of the Proactive Health Iams Indoor Weight Control with Hairball Care that had been sold in Loveland, Colo. and this week added that the potentially tainted pet food was also sold at Walmart stores in Illinois, New Mexico, Texas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kansas, Wisconsin, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming.

The affected lot has the code date 02304173 (B1-B6) and UPC number 1901403921. No illnesses have been reported but consumers should throw it away and call P&G for a replacement or refund at 800-862-3332 weekdays between 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time.

P&G spokesman Jason Taylor said there was about 20,000 bags in the recalled pet food lot and all but 476 were collected before reaching the market. The remaining bags were distributed to the Walmart stores where about 60 may have been sold to consumers. No other retailer got any of the pet food lot.
