P&G recalls lots of Iams cat food
CINCINNATI Procter & Gamble voluntarily recalled specific lots of its Iams canned cat food in North America for possibly containing insufficient levels of thiamine (vitamin B1).
Cats that were fed these canned products as their only food are at greater risk for developing signs of thiamine deficiency, P&G said, which can cause loss of appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss. This recall is limited to only Iams canned cat food distributed in North America. No other Iams pet food is involved.
Consumers who have purchased canned cat food with these codes should discard it. For further information or a product refund, call P&G toll-free at 877-340-8826.
