BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) — Check your cupboards, cat lovers: Your furry friend’s favorite food may be the target of a new recall.
The J.M. Smucker Co. announced a voluntary recall Tuesday of some 9Lives, EverPet and Special Kitty canned food products because of possible low levels of thiamine, or vitamin B1.
A full list of the included products, which were shipped to retailers from Dec. 20 to Jan. 3, can be found here.
According to a company news release, cats that eat a low-thiamine diet could develop thiamine deficiency, which can cause a loss in appetite, weight loss, vomiting and salivation, as well as neurological symptoms such as seizures and “wobbly walking.” If your cat is experiencing these issues, contact a veterinarian.
