Iams Company Statement on BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy)

Iams Company Statement on BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy) Recent news coverage of a BSE-infected cow has prompted questions about the content and safety of pet foods. The Iams Company has a long history of providing high-quality, safe nutrition that enhances the lives of millions of dogs and cats worldwide. We do not use any head (including brain), spinal column, tonsils or intestines from beef in any of our Iams or Eukanuba formulas. These tissues have been linked to BSE.

In fact, all of our dry foods are formulated without beef, including all our Iams brand dry dog and cat foods, our Eukanuba dry dog and cat foods, and our Eukanuba Veterinary Diets for dogs and cats. Chicken, lamb, and fish are our primary protein sources.

All Iams and Eukanuba ingredient panels clearly state the contents, so consumers know exactly what they are purchasing for their four-footed family members. Our Iams® Pet Care and Nutrition Center division is available to answer any and all questions regarding our product quality and safety.
