Nutro Recalls Limited Range Of Dry Cat Food Products

Dry cat food products being recalled by Nutro.

Nutro Products of Franklin, Tenn., has issued a voluntary recall of select varieties of its Natural Choice Complete Care and Nutro Max dry cat foods with “Best If Used By Dates” between May 12, 2010, and Aug. 22, 2010.

The recalled products contain incorrect levels of zinc and potassium, according to the company. Nutro pointed to a production error at a U.S.-based premix supplier as the cause of the zinc and potassium imbalance.

According to Nutro, two mineral premixes, which are added to cat food as nutritional supplements, were affected by the production error. One premix contained excessive levels of zinc and under-supplemented potassium. The second premix under-supplemented potassium, the company reported. Nutro said the issue was identified during an audit of its documentation from the supplier.

The cat food products are being recalled in the United States and ten other countries. Affected products were distributed to retail customers in all 50 states, as well as to customers in Canada, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, New Zealand and Israel. Nutro said it is working with all of its distributors and retail customers to ensure the recalled products are removed from shelves.

Nutro has not reported any consumer complaints related to this issue. Consumers who have purchased a recalled product are advised to immediately discontinue its use and monitor their cat for symptoms, which include a reduction in appetite, weight loss, vomiting or diarrhea. The company recommended cat owners contact their veterinarian if their pet begins experiencing health issues or is pregnant.

Consumers can return recalled products to the retailer for a full refund or exchange for another Nutro dry cat food product. Cat owners who have questions about the recall can call 800-833-5330 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Central Standard Time or visit Nutro's website.

The recall does not affect any Nutro dog food products, wet dog or cat food or dog and cat treats.
