Pets at Home have issued an urgent recall over fears that their pet food is causing some animals to become “seriously ill”.
They have removed four lines of its AVA dry cat food which have been immediately recalled with the warning that animals “should not eat affected product batches”.
It is believed that the product has been linked to cats fitting and collapsing.
The Food Standards Agency says the food needs to be recalled as there are low levels of thiamine.
This Thiamine level could be causing an impact to the cat’s health.
“Three cats have so far been identified which became seriously unwell after switching to one of the affected products and exhibited symptoms ranging from sudden collapse, fitting, widespread twitching and general unsteadiness which are not the classic symptoms of thiamine deficiency,” says the agency.
