Description

The Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) today announced it is coordinating with Petco to identify and secure stainless steel pet bowls that are contaminated with low-levels of cobalt-60, a radioactive material. According to Petco officials, shipments containing the potentially contaminated bowls were sent to 11 stores in Illinois. While the bowls present no immediate health risk, IEMA is working with federal officials to prevent unnecessary radiation exposure by anyone who comes in contact with them.
