Following 21 reports of health problems, Diamond Pet Foods is recalling their dry cat food marketed under Premium Edge Finicky Adult Cat and Premium Edge Hairball names. Cats in whom this food is their only source of nutrition may develop symptoms of thiamine deficiency, including decreased appetite, salivating, weight loss, and vomiting. Neurological problems develop in later states, manifesting in wobbly walking, falling, circling, seizures, bending the neck towards the floor, and finally, death.
The 21 cases of confirmed thiamine deficiency were found in N.Y. and PA. but the food was 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, return the cat food where it was purchased, or call 1-800-977-8797.
