Iams ProActive Health cat & kitten canned food recall

Posted: 6/17/2010


The Procter & Gamble Company is voluntarily recalling specific lots of its canned cat food in North America as a precautionary measure.  Some of this product does not meet quality standards for thiamine.  The affected Iams canned cat food is:

Iams ProActive Health canned cat and kitten food - all varieties of 3 oz. and 5.5oz cans

This recall is limited to only Iams canned cat food in North America.  No other Iams pet food is involved.  Iams Veterinary Formula cat is NOT included in this voluntary recall.

Thiamine deficient clinical signs would be limited primarily to cases where pet owners have been feeding only canned cat food.   Common symptoms may include anorexia, excessive salivation, generalized weakness, ataxia, ventriflexion, tremors and seizures.  Thiamine deficiency diagnosis is most often based on history, clinical signs and response to treatment.

If you need further information, concerned pet owners are directed to call P&G toll-free at 877-340-8826. 
We apologize for any inconvenience this situation may cause you and want to assure you that P&G Pet Care is taking all the necessary steps to ensure our product quality meets your expectations.
