Default Purina OM veterinary diet limited recall-thiamin deficiency

St. Louis, Missouri, May 11, 2012 . . . Nestlé Purina PetCare (NPP) is voluntarily recalling one specific lot of its Purina Veterinary Diets® OM Overweight Management canned cat food, available through veterinarians in the U.S. and Canada. This precautionary measure is being taken in response to one consumer complaint received by FDA. Analytical testing of the product sample by FDA indicated a low level of thiamine (Vitamin B1). Purina has received no other complaints of thiamine-related or any other health issues related to this product.
Only cans with the following “Best By” date and production code shown are included in this voluntary recall:

Product Name Can “Best By” Date & Can UPC Size Production Code*
Purina Veterinary Diets® OM 5.5 oz. JUN 2013 11721159 38100 - 13810
(Overweight Management) Feline Formula

*“Best By” Date and Production Code are found on the bottom of the can.
Cats fed this affected lot exclusively for several weeks may be at risk for developing a thiamine
deficiency. Thiamine is essential for cats. Symptoms of deficiency displayed by an affected cat
can be gastrointestinal or neurological in nature. Early signs of thiamine deficiency may include
decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss. In advanced cases, neurological signs
can develop, which may include ventriflexion (bending towards the floor) of the neck, wobbly
walking, falling, circling and seizures. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your cat is
displaying any of these signs.
