Iams Cat & Kitten Food Recall!
On June 9th, Proctor and Gamble (the new owner of Natura Pet Products), posted that they are recalling specific canned cat foods due to low levels of Thiamin (Vitamin B1).
The canned cat food that were recalled are:
|Product Name||Date on Bottom of Can|
|Iams ProActive Health canned Cat and Kitten Food – all varieties of 3 oz & 5.5 oz cans||09/2011 to 06/2012|
According to P&G,”early signs of thiamine deficiency may include loss of appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss. In advanced cases, signs may include ventroflexion (downward curving) of the neck, wobbly gait, falling, circling and seizures.” If your cat is eating this food and has experienced any of these symptoms it would be best to contact your veterinarian immediately.
As a side note, Pet Country has not, and will never sell Iams pet food (or any food like it).
