Several types of Diamond Naturals cat and kitten food distributed in Ontario and Quebec are being recalled today over concerns they may contain too little of an essential vitamin.

Diamond Pet Foods is voluntarily recalling its Premium Edge brand adult cat dry food, senior cat hairball management dry food and kitten dry food, as well as its Diamond Naturals kitten dry food.

It says tests show the kibble may contain inadequate levels of thiamine, also known as vitamin B1, which cats need to maintain normal nervous system function.

Cats fed product with the previously listed Production Codes and Best By dates exclusively for several
weeks may be at risk for developing a thiamine deficiency. Thiamine is essential for cats in maintaining normal nervous system function. Symptoms of thiamine deficiency displayed by an affected cat can be gastrointestinal or neurological in nature. Early signs of thiamine deficiency may include decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss. In advanced cases, neurological signs can develop, which may include ventriflexion (bending towards the floor) of the neck, wobbly walking, falling, circling and seizures. Pet owners should contact their veterinarians immediately if a cat is displaying any of these signs. If treated promptly, thiamine deficiency typically is reversible.

Nothing as yet about this at FDA.  The states involved in the recalls indicate this is from their Gaston, South Carolina plant.
