ORVILLE, Ohio — The J.M. Smucker Co. announced a voluntary recall Tuesday of some 9Lives, EverPet and Special Kitty canned food products because of possible low levels of thiamine, or vitamin B1. A full list of the included products, which were shipped to retailers from Dec. 20 to Jan. 3, can be found here.
According to a company news release, cats that eat a low-thiamine diet could develop thiamine deficiency, which can cause a loss in appetite, weight loss, vomiting and salivation, as well as neurological symptoms such as seizures and "wobbly walking." If your cat is experiencing these issues, contact a veterinarian.
"If treated promptly, thiamine deficiency is typically reversible," the company said.
