Iams Kitten & Cat Food Recall

June 10, 2010

The Proctor & Gamble Company has issued a voluntary recall of Iams ProActive Health canned Cat and Kitten Food - all varieties of 3 oz & 5.5 oz cans with the date 09/2011 to 06/2012 on the bottom of the can.

It was found that this product may contain insufficient levels of Vitamin B1 (thiamine).

Consumers who have purchased the cans above are urged to discard them.

"Early signs of thiamine deficiency may include loss of appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss. In advanced cases, signs may include ventroflexion (downward curving) of the neck, wobbly gait, falling, circling and seizures. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your cat is displaying any of these signs. If treated promptly, thiamine deficiency is typically reversible."

For more information and for a product refund contact P & G toll free at 877-340-8826 Monday through Friday from 9 am to 7 pm Eastern Time.
