Nutro Products Recalls Dry Cat Food

Nutro Products has issued a recall for some <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/food_poisoning">NUTRO® NATURAL CHOICE® COMPLETE CARE® Dry Cat Foods and NUTRO® MAX® Cat Dry Foods, announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The recall was issued because incorrect levels of zinc and potassium in the finished product resulted from a production error by a US-based premix supplier. The recall involves listed products with “Best If Used By Dates” between May 12, 2010 and August 22, 2010.

The cat food is being voluntarily recalled in the United States and Canada, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, New Zealand, and Israel, said the FDA. According to the FDA, two mineral premixes were affected. One contained excessive levels of zinc and under-supplemented potassium; the second involved under-supplemented potassium. Both minerals are essential nutrients for cats and are added as nutritional supplements to NUTRO® dry cat food. This issue was identified during an audit of supplier documentation. An extensive review confirmed that only these two premixes were affected; the recall does not affect any NUTRO® dog food products, wet dog or cat food, or dog and cat treats.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled cat food should immediately discontinue feeding the product to their cats, and switch to another product with a balanced nutritional profile. Cat owners are advised to monitor their cat for symptoms, including a reduction in appetite or refusal of food, weight loss, vomiting, or diarrhea. If your cat is experiencing health issues or is pregnant, please contact your veterinarian.

Consumers who have purchased product affected by this voluntary recall should return it to their retailer for a full refund or exchange for another NUTRO® dry cat food product. Cat owners who have questions about the recall should call 1-800-833-5330 between the hours 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM CST, or visit www.nutroproducts.com.
