Diamond Recalls Cat Food in 25 States, Including New York
Park Slope Veterinary Center alerted their patients to a voluntary recall from Diamond Pet Foods this afternoon, with includes several varieties of the company’s Premium Edge cat foods.
Premium Edge released a statement saying that the recall “was issued due to the potential for the products to have low levels of thiamine (Vitamin B1).”
The website Paw Nation explains that:
Cats need thiamine to keep their nervous systems operating normally. A lack of the nutrient can lead to serious neurological and gastrointestinal problems. The first signs of thiamine deficiency are lack of appetite, vomiting, weight loss and salivation. In more developed cases, neurological problems like a wobbly walk, circling and seizures can arise.
If your bag is printed with the below production code, and Best By date, discard the food immediately. Keep an eye on your fur kid, too. If they begin to show any signs of ill heath, contact your veterinarian.
Additional questions regarding the recall should be made to Premium Edge at 888-965-6131, Sunday through Saturday, from 8am to 6pm EST.
