Diamond Pet Foods voluntarily recalled limited production codes of Premium Edge Finicky Adult Cat Formula dry cat food, Premium Edge Senior Cat Hairball Management Formula dry cat food, Premium Edge Kitten Formula dry cat food, Diamond Naturals Kitten Formula dry cat food and 4health All Life Stages Cat Formula dry cat food.
Tests conducted by the company indicated the products might have a low level of thiamine (Vitamin B1).
There have been no complaints regarding thiamine levels, or any other health issues, related to these products, according to a release from the FDA.
In association with this voluntary recall, Diamond Pet Foods tested all other Diamond brands for thiamine deficiency to ensure the safety of the cat food it manufactures. No other product manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods is involved in this voluntary recall.
To see the list of products impacted, visit the FDA website.
“At Diamond Pet Foods, we have a process where we continuously test our products, and this process allowed us to find the undesired levels of thiamine in some of our cat formulas,” Michele Evans, Ph.D., Diamond Pet Foods executive director of food safety and quality assurance, said. “Our food safety protocols are designed to provide safe food on a daily basis. In the event an error occurs, we have the data to quickly alert pet owners, giving them the confidence they demand of a pet food manufacturer.”
