Diamond Recalls Some Premium Edge Cat Food In Eastern U.S.



Published:

In an action limited to the Eastern United States, Diamond Pet Foods of Meta, Mo., recalled its Premium Edge Finicky Adult Cat and its Premium Edge Hairball formulas with date codes: RAF0501A22X (18-lb.), RAF0501A2X ((6-lb.), RAH0501A22X (18-lb.) and RAH0501A2X (6-lb.)

The recall was prompted by calls from cat owners and veterinarians in the Rochester, N.Y., area. Retailers in the area have been asked to remove affected products from the shelves and contact any customers that had purchased affected product. Diamond is further requesting that any cat owners that purchased the above products return them to their retailer.

The affected cats displayed neurological symptoms.

Product testing showed no contaminants in the cat food but that the foods were deficient in thiamine. Diamond reports that tests performed on other Premium Edge cat foods using the same lot of vitamin premix as used in the recalled foods did not show a thiamine deficiency.

Neurological signs have not been seen in other Diamond Pet Food products, the company reported.
