Massive recall of cat food underway:

meret118:

Multiple cat food companies have voluntarily recalled dozens of their products over concerns the pets could get sick from eating them. Certain cans of cat fold from 9Lives, EverPet and Special Kitty did not have the proper amount of thiamine, which is also known as Vitamin B1, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which announced the recall Tuesday.

The products affected were all distributed for retail between Dec. 20 and Tuesday. A full list of the canned cat food recalled follows below:

9Lives

Meaty Pate Chicken and Tuna 13 oz.

Meaty Pate Seafood Platter 5.5 oz.

Meaty Pate Seafood Platter, 4 pack of 5.5 oz. cans

Meaty Pate Super Supper 5.5 oz.

Meaty Pate with Chicken and Tuna 5.5 oz.

Meaty Pate with Chicken Dinner 5.5 oz.

Meaty Pate with Ocean Whitefish 5.5 oz.

As of Wednesday morning, there was no information about parent company J.M. Smucker offering any refunds for the potentially affected cat food. Instead, the company instructed customers who purchased any of the above products to stop feeding their cats the food and to call 1-800-828-9980 or email consumer.relations@jmsmucker.com.

Low levels of thiamine could result in a cat having symptoms ranging from a lack of an appetite to seizures. While thiamine deficiency can be serious for cats, it can be treated if detected early.

A separate recall of cat food was issued in June when products from the Rad Cat Raw Diet may have been contaminated with either Salmonella or Listeria, or both, the FDA announced at the time.
