9Lives, Special Kitty cat food recalled for low vitamin B1 levels

9Lives, Special Kitty cat food recalled for low vitamin B1 levels

Cats who don't get enough thiamine in their diet can develop thiamine deficiency.

"Early signs of thiamine deficiency may include decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting, and weight loss", the FDA says.

The J.M. Smucker Co. announced a limited voluntary recall Tuesday (Jan. 3) on certain lots of 9Lives, EverPet and Special Kitty canned cat food because possible low levels of thiamine or Vitamin B1. More advanced cases will exhibit neurological symptoms including ventroflexion of the neck, which means bending toward the floor, dilated pupils, weakness, being uncoordinated, circling, falling, and even seizures. No illnesses have been reported, but the affected products are being recalled out of an abundance of caution, the company said. However, if your cat is exhibiting any of these symptoms, you should contact a veterinarian immediately. If treated promptly, thiamine deficiency typically is reversible.




Recalled products include 13 9Lives Meaty Paté varieties of various sizes, 9Lives Seafood Poultry Variety Pack, EverPet Mixed Grill Dinner 13 ounce, and five different varieties of 13-ounce Special Kitty dinners sold within the affected dates.

The cat food would have been purchased between December 20 and January 3. The phone lines are open Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m.to 6:00 p.m. EST.
