(ATLANTA) -- The Georgia Dept. of Agriculture has announced a recall of Iams ProActive Health Cat and Kitten Food. Manufacturer Proctor & Gamble says 3-ounce and 5.5 ounce cans may contain low levels of thiamine, Vitamin B1. All other Iams products are safe to feed your cat.
The recalled cans have the dates 9/2011 to 6/2012 stamped on the bottom. If you have one of these cans, you should discard it and contact the manufacturer.
Proctor & Gamble has set up a toll-free number for questions and product refunds. However, it will only be answered Monday through Friday. That number is 1-877-340-8826.
Any cat with a thiamine deficiency may show loss of appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss. In worst cases, the cat may show a downward curving of the neck, a wobbly gait, falling, circling and seizures. If your cat shows any of these signs, call your veterinarian. The deficiency can be reversed if treated promptly.
