Purina Veterinary Diets Recall

Nestlé Purina PetCare has issued a voluntary recall of one lot of Purina Veterinary Diets® OM Overweight Management canned cat food.  Analytical testing of the product sample by FDA indicated a low level of thiamine (Vitamin B1).

The affected lot is:

* Purina Veterinary Diets® OM (Overweight Management) Feline Formula - 5.5 oz cans - "Best by Date" of JUN 2013 - Production Code of 11721159 - UPC Code - 38100-13810

“Best By Date" and Production Code are found on the bottom of the can.


Early signs of thiamine deficiency involve the gastrointestinal tract and may include vomiting, loss of appetite, salivation and weight loss. Advanced cases of thiamine deficiency involve the neurological system and may include ventroflexion (downward curving) of the neck, wobbly gait, circling, falling and seizures.

Contact your veterinarian immediately if your cat is displaying any of these signs. If treated promptly, thiamine deficiency is typically reversible.

If you have cans from this lot, stop feeding them and contact Nestlé Purina for more information:
