I read this at Twitter @Xxxxxxxx and wondered if anyone has any info on this food...never heard of it before today..these were 3 separate posts in newest to oldest..

Any vet w/cat w/neuro symptoms fed Premium Edge, asked to contact Dr Hubbard at http://stoneridgevethosp.com/

'Best by dates on 6 and 18lb bags range from October to December Premium Edge' - low in thiamin, causing neuro disorders.

Just rec'd pvt warning on mail-list that Premium Edge Finicky Adult and Hairball formulas are dangerous low in thiamin, haven't web source.


I edited the Twitter acct name out as these 3 posts are off that poster's timeline...

Looking at the ingredients for the Adult Chicken Dogfood, it has chicken and oceanfish MEAL in it.
That's not fresh chicken as stated on website and packaging!

Food tested deficient in thiame after veterinian in Rochestor NY encountered numerous cats eating Finicky Adult Cat or Hairball Formula” Premium Edge cat food with neurological problems.

No information at the company website as of yet.

This is interesting.  If it is not the pre-mix, what "manufacturing error" would cause a defficiency in thiamine?  Seems like pre-mix not added would have a whole host of problems.  Level of sulphur dioxide (preservative) used??

I'm guessing we'll never know.

Once again -- the importance of not relying on just one brand of food -- rotate or feed a mixture of several kinds.

Saw a post at Pet Connection indicating the company has a statement on the website.

http://www.premiumedgepetfood.com/promotions/66/

Unlike Nutro (at least so far), they have put a link to the announcement on the main page of their website.

Man, just issues with Diamond. What kind of outfit is this, anyway? There have been so many problems that I really can't reconcile ever feeding my cats any of their stuff. I guess I'm glad Pip was intolerant of TOTW after all.

Yeah but once again, the company was not going to make this public until word got out about it.  So Im glad they have something at their site and its great they put it on the front page but Im getting tired of these companies not being upfront and honest until they are called on the carpet about it.

So it sounds like Diamond is having the stores contact people who bought the food?  I wonder how effective that really is?  What about people who paid cash for the food, can they be contacted?  What stores and do they really have that good of a system to contact people?  And I wonder what the stores think, they are having to spend their time and money and employees calling customers about Diamonds food problem?  Maybe they are being reimbursed for their trouble?  I would think if they are also doing this for Nutro's food problem, they might be getting sick of it about now...maybe they should tell these companies to get their act together or they wont sell their food for them anymore...

I just hope they can really get ahold of everyone who bought the food...I have terrible visions in my mind of someones cat coming down with this neuro problem and the owners and vet not knowing why and then mistakenly putting the cat down because they dont know its the food and they think they cant help the cat get better.....I so hope this doesnt happen...
