Hill's Pet Nutrition: Company Recalls Cat Food Due to High Levels of Iron

Hill’s Pet Nutrition has announced an expansion of its May cat food recall, now to include an additional product due to high levels of iron.

Though essential to cats’ diets, excess iron can cause serious digestive upset, potentially leading to dangerous diarrhea and vomiting.

WHY WAS IT RECALLED?
The initial recall was undertaken after high amounts of iron were discovered in six Hill’s “Science Plan” products. The increase in iron was believed to be an ingredient supplier error.

This product was available for sale in the United Kingdom and Ireland as early as May 2016.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
If your cat has consumed the affected product, keep an eye out for the following symptoms of excess iron:

Depression
Shock
Gastrointestinal hemorrhage
Diarrhea
Vomiting
Abdominal Pain
Tremors

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
If you have purchased a bag of Hill’s Science Plan Feline Healthy Ageing, call the company’s consumer helpline at 0800-282-438 to inquire about a replacement or a refund. If your bag has been opened, dispose of the food as soon as possible, ensuring your pet won’t find it.

It's Hill's, they don't really care because they get veterinarians to push their food, so the vet has to take the heat (or, repeat customers) when the pet gets sick from it.

I believe that. my vet always has Hills there. every time I see people buying it, I cringe. I have been tempted to tell these people.

guess, the more sick animals, the more money they make. greedy bastards.
