Nutro Products is recalling several varieties of NUTRO® NATURAL CHOICE® COMPLETE CARE® Dry Cat Foods and NUTRO® MAX® Cat Dry Foods with “Best If Used By Dates” between May 12, 2010 and August 22, 2010.
The recalled products were distributed in across the United States, and also in Canada, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, New Zealand, and Israel.
The recall was triggered after Nutro discovered a production error by its US supplier of mineral premixes. Two premix batches contained insufficient amounts of potassium, and one of those batches also contained too much zinc.
Nutro advises cat owners who use the recalled products to switch immediately to another formula, and to monitor their cats for symptoms that include a reduction in appetite or refusal of food, weight loss, vomiting or diarrhea.
For more information on this recall, consumers and cat owners should contact Nutro Products at 1-800-833-5330, or visit the company's web site at www.nutroproducts.com.
