I opened a large can of Wellness Turkey and the food was separated from the side, anyone else have this? Just didn't fill the can all the way?

I am never sure what is right or not with cans.

thanks!

I've noticed this some.  Don't think it is an issue.  My cats are eating it and the food looks fine.

I had a case of rx food like that.  You can always call one of their customer service people or email them whenever you have concerns.  They have been very good about answering any of my questions, and they do return calls and emails.  They give you a case # so you can follow up for further information if necessary.  I feed their turkey, too.

I've seen this in many of the Wellness cans I feed my five, including the turkey.

When I was feeding Wellness Turkey, the food was often separated from the side. It might have something to do with the texture; it's not as mushy as some canned foods. I doubt it's a problem.

I have seen this with many different canned foods of many brands.  I agree it seems to be with the "stiffer" foods in general.  They probably form up into more of a "meat loaf" and shrink away from the side of the can in cooking, just like when you bake something in a pan in your oven.  My cats have eaten these cans of food without problems.  I don't think it is a serious cause for concern, unless you notice something else odd.

I, too, have noticed the same thing with different brands not just Wellness.   The loaf shrinks from the side of the can.   My cats have not shown an ill effects from the Wellness or various other brands.

Thanks to all!

I noticed white specks in the beef and chicken and took a deep breath and figured it is the flax seed, or similar supplement.

So stressful!

mickey,

Most of the cans I have opened have a little gelatinous material on the bottom and/or sides in them which reminds me of fat like when you roast chicken or turkey.  Cats especially like that part of it.  I buy the big 12.5 cans.  Wondering if that is what you are talking about when you say separated from the side of the the can.  ?

Hey Mickey,

Same with all of our 12.5oz Wellness cans, don't notice it with the 5.5oz cans though.  I'm not too concerned.  The cats have been eating Turkey or Chicken exclusively for a few months.  I do need to pick up some toothbrushes now, yikes.

BTW, does anyone notice that the 12.5oz cans are much more juicy than the 5.5oz cans?  Odd, but true.

Never bought the 5.5 ounce cans, but the one case of 3 ounce cans we used was not as moist as the 12.5 ounce cans.

I use Wellness Turkey all the time. Never noticed that.

In both the 5.5 and 12.5 oz cans, I have seen several where the food has seperated from the sides of the cans. I have never noticed white specks, but I rarely feed the beef and chicken variety since my cats don't like it as well.

I feed a lot of the beef and chicken since one of my cats likes it best.  I have seen little white dots that appear to be fat globules or something similar, like JustMe described with the chicken and turkey above.  Cats have eaten these with no ill effects seen.  (Since they used to eat Nutro, they are getting blood work every 6 months for awhile.)
