    May 24th, 2007

    Itchmo has learned that a toxicology test reported the presence of
    cyanuric acid in an opened bag of what is alleged to be Iams Large Breed
    dry dog food.

    According to the report obtained by Itchmo, (available on the site) the
    results have been certified by a forensic toxicologist. The testing
    method detects concentrations in excess of 0.1%. We have obtained a copy
    of the toxicology report and you can see for yourself. We have remove

    We cannot stress this point enough: This test was performed on a sample
    from an opened bag. We do not know if this is an isolated case of
    contamination before or after the sale, or if it is widespread.

    This information requires verification and we are asking for your help.

    Itchmo is asking you to find an unopened 20 lb. bag of Iams Large Breed
    dry dog food that matches the lot number: 260608 70574173 F4 US30940
    with the expiration date of 6/26/08.

    If you find an unopened bag, please email us at and we
    will provide further instructions. If its the right bag, we will pay
    for the cost of the bag of food, shipping and testing. There will be no
    cost to you.

    If an unopened bag is found and tested, we will release the results as
    soon as they become available regardless of the outcome.
