Procter & Gamble's pet care division recalled petfood products in both its Natura Pet Products line and its new Iams Shakeables in March, which is raising concerns about the company's quality-control issues, according to reports.
On March 18, P&G recalled four of its Natura petfood brands for potential Salmonella contamination in dry petfood, and shortly after, the company recalled Shakeables turkey and lamb pet treats. Some experts predict the recalls will likely hurt the already struggling company's revenues. Since a 2007 recall due to melamine was linked to hundreds of pet deaths, P&G's market share has fallen from 12 percent to 10 percent.
