J.M. Smucker Company Recalls Canned Cat Food Causing Potentially Deadly Side Effects

  • Global Moderator

    The company said it received reports of pets having adverse reactions to 5.5 oz. cans of Natural Balance Ultra Premium Chicken & Liver Paté Formula.

    The concerns are likely due to elevated levels of choline chloride, the company said.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said cats ingesting the product could suffer nausea with excessive salivation, constricted pupils and poor vision, diarrhea or vomiting, or more severe symptoms like difficulty walking, muscle shaking, tremors, irregular heartbeat, difficulty breathing and possible cardiac or respiratory failure sometimes leading to death.

    Pet owners who notice any of these symptoms should call their cat’s veterinarian right away, and throw out the potentially deadly cat food.

    The affected products include the following information on the bottom of the cans:

    Product Name: Natural Balance® Ultra Premium Chicken & Liver Paté Formula canned cat food
    5.5 oz can
    Retail UPC Code: 2363353227
    Lot Code: 9217803
    Best If Used By Date: 08 04 2021
    The product is commonly sold in pet specialty stores and online throughout the U.S. and Canada.
