Fancy Feast Savory Salmon Feast (Pink Can) 

I buy FF at Costco in the 36-ct boxes.  Haven't had any problems for a year or more.  For the last several weeks the cats haven't cleaned their bowls as usual, ended up throwing food out which never happens with these little monsters.

Sophia,
Are your cats actually vomiting as the subject line suggests?  In the post you just said you were throwing food away, so I am just clarifying.  I use FF, but not usually the Salmon.  Mandy is not a big fish lover.  You might want to report your concerns to Purina just so that they can check on it.  There are sometimes inconsistencies in all foods, though - some difference in ingredients that the cats detect that causes them not to like that particular lot as much.  If they are vomiting, though, I would report it, and then return whatever you have left and choose a different lot.

Usually the cats clean their bowls completely.  For the last several weeks they've not always eaten everything.  That in itself had my concern.  This morning two cats didn't want to eat, did so anyway and then vomited within minutes.  They are acting okay. 

One 36-ct box lasts one week, so it's been more than this box we're using now.  I may just return the boxes I have in the pantry and try another brand. 

Thanks Mandycat!

Sophia,
Thanks for clarifying. It is difficult when cats are hesitant about eating a particular lot of food, but if they have been eating it for some weeks, whatever they don't like about it probably is a matter of taste or texture if they have not gotten sick.  But, when Mandy actually vomits a particular can, I definitely will just stop using that lot.  So, it would be good to return whatever you have and move on to a different lot of the food or change foods.  I know this is particularly inconvenient when you buy it buy the case.  You could still report it to Purina just so that they can check the food, especially if they get other complaints about that particular lot.  I know some people think that it doesn't do any good to make a complaint, but if no one lets a company know about a particular potential problem, they definitely can't do anything about it.  So, it can't hurt to try to inform them.  I hope your kitties will be okay.

My cats seem to have diarrhea and are vomiting too. I am beside myself about what to feed.  the only difference in what I have given them in their diet which would make them  have a very loose diarrhea is the few new cases of Fancy Feast I have started giving them as of yesterday.  No one wanted to eat it, and  it smelled strange to me, but I was out of canned and so I left it in their dish, and eventually they ate it, poor things.
I had returned almost a case of Ocean whitefish & tuna feast about a month ago, and decided to risk it again, and now this. Ocean whitefish & tuna feast classic
Best by Jan 2013 10121 1160
and Salmon & Shrimp feast classic (they usually like this) Best by Dec 2012 0344 1160
I tried to call Purina, but they are closed for the weekend.

No one wanted to eat either one of those flavors, but finally they did because they were  hungry.  The salmon smells a bit like "sausage" is the only thing I can think of, but not like fish.  I am so disgusted with Purina.  I tried to call but they are closed for the weekend.  I know t hey would say there have been no other complaints.  I will try to call them on Monday.
I have also fed the tender beef, and they seemed ok and wanted to eat that.  I am at my wits end about what canned to feed them.   I will not buy wellness after all the problems people here write about.

BW,

We stick mainly with the Fancy Feast Turkey & Giblets Classic and so far no problems...Knock on wood.

BW might want to ask Purina when you call if any of the fish is from the gulf where the BP oil fiasco is ongoing. Never know if corexit may be in the fish,  just a thought as your free to feed your babies what you want.

I've been feeding ff turkey and giblets and chopped grill for quite some time now with no issues for my gang of four. FF probably makes up 25% of their diet (25% is whiskas, and 50% is soulistic and/or weruva and sometimes bff)

Bw, Max and Raleigh eat mainly Fancy Feast wet. We eat Chicken, Turkey and Giblets and sometimes Grilled Feast ( all from the Classic variety because it doesn't contain glutens). I have never tried any of the fish varieties with my kitties. Great suggestion from JJ about inquiring about the origin of the fish in their seafood varieties.
I feel pretty good about serving Purina wet to my kids because they do their own manufacturing. That doesn't mean that there couldn't be problems, but there are less "middlemen" involved in the process. 
Hope your kitties are feeling better.  Kiss

Well, no one here has wanted the turkey and giblets classic, so I returned a bunch of it, but since I am down low now and don't know what else to feed tonight.  I have one can left, that I misplaced and didn't return, so I will give it to them and see what they think now.   
I am getting really tired of returning catfood, and spending so much and then having diarrhea and vomiting going on.  So many of you are doing ok, on the turkey and giblets, I will try that tonight.  Thanks so  much.
