Pets at Home recalls four dry cat food products due to low levels of thiamine






Last updated:  27 February 2017
product recall
Pets at Home is recalling four lines of its AVA dry cat food products because there are lower levels of thiamine (Vitamin B1) present than specified in the recipe. Your cat should not eat affected product batches. The FSA is issuing this product recall notice because we are responsible for animal feed regulations and enforcement of pet food labelling through local authorities in England and Wales.

No other AVA or Pets At Home products are known to be affected

Risk
Thiamine deficiency in cats may impact a cat’s health. At least three cats have been identified which became seriously unwell after switching to one of the affected products and exhibited symptoms ranging from sudden collapse, fitting, widespread twitching and general unsteadiness which are not the classic symptoms of thiamine deficiency.

Our advice to consumers
If you have bought any of the listed products with the specified product codes, please return it to where you bought it for a full refund or call 0800 328 4204.

If you have concerns that your cat may be showing any of these symptoms after switching to one of the four affected products then you should stop feeding and seek immediate veterinary advice. You can also contact one of Pets At Home customer advisers on 0800 328 4204 for general advice.

Action taken by the company
Pets At Home has recalled the above products. A notification has been sent to vets to be aware of the atypical symptoms and potential for thiamine deficiency.  Point of sale notices have been placed in all affected stores and in store and  information  has been made available on the website. A notification has been published on Facebook and there has been direct correspondence with all known customers.  All this information explains to customers why the products are being recalled and tell them what to do if they have bought the product. Please see the attached notice.

About product recalls and withdrawals
If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product). The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to let consumers and local authorities know about problems associated with food. In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued. This provides local authorities with details of specific action to be taken on behalf of consumers.
