WellPet LLC is voluntarily recalleing certain lots of Wellness canned cat food because some of the lots might contain less than adequate levels of thiamine. 

WellPet says cats fed only the affected lots for several weeks may be at risk for developing a thiamine deficiency. 

Early signs of thiamine deficiency may include decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting, and weight loss. In advanced cases, neurologic signs can develop, which may include wobbly walking, circling, falling, and seizures. If your cat has consumed the recalled lots and has these symptoms, contact your veterinarian.  If treated promptly, thiamine deficiency is typically reversible.
 
The lots involved in the recall are:

  • Wellness Canned Cat (all flavors and sizes) with best by dates from 14APR 13 through 30SEP13;
  •  
  • Wellness Canned Cat Chicken & Herring (all sizes) with 10NOV13 or 17NOV13 best buy dates.

If you have cans of food from these lots you should stop feeding it to your cats.

For more information call (877) 227-9587 Monday through Friday, 9:00 am – 7:00 pm Eastern Time or visit www.wellnesspetfood.com
