Iams canned cat food recalled

Iams voluntarily recalls canned cat food because of essential vitamin- Thiamin- deficiency.
The company that makes a popular brand of pet foods is voluntarily recalling one brand because it doesn't contain an essential vitamin.
Proctor & Gamble said this week that Iams ProActive Health canned cat and kitten food contains insufficient levels of thiamine, or Vitamin B1. The recall includes all varieties of 3 and 5-ounce cans with expiration dates from September 2011 to June 2012 on the bottom of the cans.
No other Iams products are affected by the recall.
Cats that have eaten the canned Iams food could be at a higher risk of thiamine deficiency, but the condition is typically reversible, according to a statement from P&G. Early signs of thiamine deficiency may include loss of appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss. In advanced cases, signs may include downward curving of the neck, falling, circling and seizures.
Those who have purchased the canned cat food should discard it and contact P&G for a refund by calling 877-340-8826.
