(KMOV.com) -- Procter & Gamble has voluntarily recalled some of its dry dog and cat food because of potential Salmonella contamination.

The company said the food was distributed to most states along the East Coast, including Georgia.

The recall affects select packages of Iams dry dog and cat food and Eukanuba dog food. For a complete list of pet food, click here. Products were also marked with a Use-by date of November 2014.

P&G reported no illnesses, but the recall is a precautionary measure. P&G said they have notified retailers and are working to remove the product from shelves.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 42,000 cases of salmonella are reported in the U.S. annually, but that number could be grossly under reported. Symptoms in humans include diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal cramping, according to the CDC.

According to Proctor and Gamble, animals display similar symptoms.
