We wanted you to be aware of the following food recall from Procter & Gamble
P&G announced a voluntary recall of select varieties of Iams ProActive
Health Cat and Kitten Food in 3-oz. and 5.5-oz. cans. The cat food is being
voluntarily recalled in
North America only. This recall is due to incorrect levels of
thiamine--an essential part of the cat diet. Dates on the bottom of the
recalled cans range from 09/2011 to 06/2012.
Consumers who have purchased affected product should immediately discontinue
feeding the product to their cats and switch to another product with a
balanced nutritional profile. Cat owners using this product should monitor
their cat for signs of thiamine deficiency, including a reduction in
appetite or refusal of food, weight loss, vomiting or diarrhea, and
salivation. Advanced signs of thiamine deficiency may include seizures,
falling, circling, or downward curving of the neck. If your cat is pregnant
or experiencing health issues, please make an appointment for an exam.
For further information or a product refund, call P&G toll-free at
877-340-8826 (Monday–Friday, 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM EST).
Remember, this affects only Iams ProActive Health
Cat and Kitten Food in 3 oz. and 5.5 oz. cans marked with the dates
identified above. For more detailed product information, the
