WHY WAS IT RECALLED?

The low levels of thiamine was discovered by Smucker’s, and no illnesses have been reported yet. However, if you have been feeding your animal any of the above foods, keep an eye on them.

Symptoms of deficiency displayed by an affected cat can be gastrointestinal or neurological in nature. Early signs of thiamine deficiency may include decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting, and weight loss. In advanced cases, neurological signs can develop, which include ventroflexion (bending towards the floor) of the neck, wobbly walking, circling, falling, and seizures.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
The products below are all effected. If you have food contained in the recall, throw it out. :)

DON’T FORGET to SHARE this info to all your friends and animal’s lovers!
