    Default Pet food company Nutro announces recall of dry cat food


    Pet food company Nutro has announced a recall of dry cat food sold in the U.S. and 10 other countries, including Canada, Mexico, Japan and Israel. The cause of the recall, Nutro says, was a production error that caused incorrect levels of potassium and zinc to be used in the affected food.
    Nutro dry cat food that bears a "best if used by" date falling between May 12, 2010 and Aug. 22, 2010 should be returned to the retailer for a refund or exchange. "Two mineral premixes were affected" by the error, which was made by a premix supplier, according to a statement on Nutro's website. "One premix contained excessive levels of zinc and under-supplemented potassium. The second premix under-supplemented potassium."
    The company says it has received no consumer complaints about adverse health effects on cats who ate the food, but cautions owners to watch out for symptoms including reduced appetite or refusal to eat, weight loss, vomiting and diarrhea. (ConsumerAffairs.com dismisses the claim that no complaints were received, saying that it has logged more than 800 complaints about Nutro's food from pet owners.) Owners of at-risk cats, such as those that are pregnant or already in poor health, should check with their veterinarian.
    Nutro's moist cat food, cat treats, and dog food (dry or moist) are unaffected by the recall. For a full list of affected products, see Nutro's website or call (800) 833-5330 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Central time.
