BUFFALO, N.Y. (RELEASE) - Diamond Pet Foods recalled select bags of dry cat food Tuesday after 21 reports of health problems in cats.
Select bags of Premium Edge Finicky Adult Cat and Premium Edge Hairball could lead to gastrointestinal or neurological problems for cats, because they do not contain enough thiamine, an essential nutrient for cats.
If cats fed these foods have no other source of nutrition, they could develop thiamine deficiency. If untreated, this disorder could result in death.
Initial symptoms of thiamine deficiency include decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss. Later, neurological problems could develop including, bending the neck toward the floor, wobbly walking, circling, falling and seizures.
The company has confirmed 21 cases of thiamine deficiency in New York and Pennsylvania.
The recalled bags of food were distributed in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.
For a full refund, consumers can return the recalled cat food to the place it was purchased. For more information call 800-977-8797.
