I got a PM on this forum from a member called La7de and she gave me a link which I cannot read.  She told me that Pounce cat treats are on the recall list....

I have read most everything on this forum and I cannot see anywhere that pounce cat treats have been recalled.....

Would someone please verify this for me.  I replied to La7de yesterday and she hasn't pm'ed back and I am worried to death....

I appreciate you letting me know by PM La7de, but I would like to see some back up information where you got this....and I am wondering if it is posted here so I can read the posts on it...

Thanks, Amy

Chicken flavored Pounce treats have been recalled. It's listed on the front page of the recalled foods on this site or go to DelMonte and they also have it listed with the use by dates.

Hi Amy, I am new member but have been reading everything since back in March.  I too was feeding my cats Luv cat treats.  I stopped immediately as soon as I heard about the first recall because they do have wheat gluten in them.  I have searched all over for any information about them being recalled and have not seen any.  However because of this wake up call , I will never feed them anything like that again.  They are 7 year old purebred persians and they are my family.  I was ignorant about what was in the foods I was feeding my babies.  They loved those treats, from what I know now the animal digest (#1 ingredient) makes them love them and taste good.  They are made by Purina which I thought was a good old trustworthy company. Ha.  I am disgusted with myself for feeding them all the crap that I did , now that I know what is it. I fed Pounce as well but had not bought any for a month or two.  It is the chicken flavor I understand that has been recalled.  In the Purina Luv , I fed chicken, salmon, and sometimes tuna flavor.  They liked the semi soft kind best and of course it is just full of crap. Animal digest,  Corn gluten meal, chicken by-product meal, wheat gluten, soy protein, added color (Red 40 and other color), and ethoxyquin!!  I saved the remainder in case I needed them but so far okay.  And again, I have found no recall on them nor complaints in the forums about them.  But they would be at the top of my list of foods to avoid!

I wish now that I'd saved the can of Pounce treats that I tossed out a week or so ago. I didn't want my kids feeding them to the kitties, so tossed them for safety. I think they were some kind of fish flavor, since that's what my girls like best.

I hadn't been giving many Pounce treats to my cats lately because Callie usually threw up if she had more than one or two. She still liked to eat them, but it really makes me wonder now. She's also been one to throw up after eating kibble in the past year or so. It may just be an intolerance of some of the grains, but maybe it's more.

My girls don't appear at all ill, but since they're overdue for a visit with the vet, I may take them in for a complete going over. They also consumed one of the NB recalled cans.

Halo Liv a Littles pet treats:
There is a natural pet treat made by Halo called "Liv a Littles" which come in chicken or salmon.  It is pure chicken or salmon which is cooked then freezedried (according to the company when I called them).  I can get it at health food stores, some independent pet food stores, and sometimes in the health food section of supermarkets.  I don't know if other pets will like these treats- but my cats LOVE them so I wanted to reccommend them to any pet parents looking for treat alternatives.  The treats look like dried chunks of meat, and they crumble since dry, so they can leave some "dust" but it's worth having a healthy treat for my pets.  I have used the treats crushed when I've had to give medicine since I can crush the pill and mix it in with the crushed treat!  But check with your vet before crushing any pills!  It has eliminated the struggle of trying to force my cats into taking liquid medicine- something which NEVER worked on any of my cats.  I don't give the treats regularly since I prefer to save them for emergencies like an illness.  I've also used them crumbled on top of foods as incentive to eat when switching to new foods (but they're not intended to be fed exclusively as food).

I think Petco may be carrying some of the Halo products now, (pretty sure our local one does) so if you don't live in the vicinity of a good independently-run pet shop, you might be able to turn something up there.
