Iams recalls cat food for vitamin deficiencies

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Procter and Gamble announced a voluntary recall yesterday of Iams Proactive Health Cat and Kitten Canned Food (with date stamp of 9/2011 and 06/2012 on bottom of cans) due to concerns regarding B1/Thiamine deficiencies.

The biggest concern would be cats who have been eating these foods exclusively. Cats who have been eating other foods in combination with the Iams diets would most likely be getting adequate levels of thiamine from other diets. In any case, to be on the safe side we advise that you discontinue feeding your cat(s) any of the Iams non-prescription diets and watch for symptoms like decreased appetite, vomiting, and apparent dizziness. If you notice any of these signs, contact your veterinarian immediately.

You can return any Iams products purchased from Cats Exclusive for a full refund.

Iams/Eukanuba veterinary ( prescription) cat foods are not part of this recall.
