I just opened a can of Merrick's Turducken and it was soupy. I gave a little to my kitty and he ate it. I am guessing it just means more broth was in this batch?

Does anyone have any other guesses why it would have this consistency?

I can't think of what would be bad that would make it soupy, can you?

Thanks!

I encountered the same issue with Merrick's Thanksgiving Dinner. I buy my cat food by the case, and found some cans had more broth.
My cats ate the food and had no problems. My guess is it was scooped from the bottom of the pot... just being facetious. Grin

My cat ate a whole case of Turducken, and some of the cans were more soupy than others.
No issues with it, but by the last cans he was tired of it.

i contacted merricks the customer service lady said they were aware of this issue and had received complaints and are working on fixing the issue. she said that could take a month or two to do, this was a month ago. many of the batches that are this way all have the same dates, same month year was 2010 i think? she said to look for the more recent dates by month. My cat wont eat merricks anymore so i ended up switching. she also sent a free coupon for a case of the stuff.

Ask Merrick about their 'organic iodine' that is not listed on the label and see what they tell  you. Just thought I'd add that since people want to know if this food is safe to feed. Same company makes a dog food sold at Sam's club that may have been reason my last dog developed the cancer from all the 'hidden' toxins in it.

mickey Merrick will eventually answer you back. Takes them awhile but you do get a response. I also have my reasons for no longer using this food but others think its great stuff but will say a prayer their pets remain safe while consuming it.
