Just received an e-mail from AAHA regarding the newest company to issue a food recall. Purina is recalling one specific lot of Veterinary Diet OM (Overweight Management) canned cat food 5.5 OZ. cans. It is only sold through veterinarians and is not an OTC sell. According to Purina the recall is precautionary, and is a response to a consumer complaint to the FDA. Testing by the FDA revealed a low level of thiamine (vitamin B1), which has potential to create a thiamine deficiency in cats.
The affected food was distributed between June 2011-May 2012
