Cat Food Recall~

I am sure that as cat lovers we want the best for our pets. A very sweet friend of mine sent me the information below to warn you about LAMS products that are on recall. Please read below..

Just days after P&G finalizes its buy-out of Natura...more evidence that it can't even correctly make food that it's been making since 1999.

Thanks to for this alert. CINCINNATI, June 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) is voluntarily recalling specific lots of its Iams canned cat food in North America as a precautionary measure. Diagnostic testing indicated that the product may contain insufficient levels of thiamine (Vitamin B1), which is essential for cats. Cats that were fed these canned products as their only food are at greater risk for developing signs of thiamine deficiency.

The following Iams canned cat foods are included:Product NameIams ProActive Health canned Cat and Kitten Food – all varieties of 3 oz & 5.5 oz cans Date on Bottom of Can09/2011 to 06/2012This recall is limited to only Iams canned cat food distributed in North America. No other Iams pet food is involved. 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. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your cat is displaying any of these signs.
