Recall: VitaKitty Chicken Breast with Flaxseed and Vitamins
Posted by Abby Rosenberg on July 31, 2012
Filed under PetMeds Spotlight

Arthur Dogswell LLC has issued a voluntary recall of their Catswell brand VitaKitty Chicken Breast with Flaxseed and Vitamins cat treats. The recall involves 1051 cartons of the treats, packed 10 or 50 packages per case, because these packages have the potential to contain propylene glycol. The recall resulted from a routine surveillance sample by the company and the FDA.  According to the FDA press release, “High levels of propylene glycol in the treats could result in serious injury to cats. The adverse health impacts could be reducing red blood cell survival time (anemia) and making the cells more susceptible to oxidative damage. No illnesses have been reported to date.”

The affected cat treats were distributed nationwide from April 13, 2012 through June 14, 2012. The two lots of treats involved in the recall have lot codes SEW12CH032701/03c and SEW12CH032702/03c, and a best-before date of 09/10/13 and 09/11/13. You can find the lot codes on the bottom right backside of the treat package.

If you purchased these treats, you are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a refund. If you have any questions, you can contact the manufacturer, Arthur Dogswell, at 1-888-559-8833 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 pm PST Monday through Friday.
