I got this sent to me by my vet even though I do not use it thought some out there may.

P&G announced a voluntary recall of select varieties of Iams ProActive Health Cat and Kitten Food in 3-oz. and 5.5-oz. cans. The cat food is being voluntarily recalled in North America only. This recall is due to incorrect levels of thiamine--an essential part of the cat diet. Dates on the bottom of the recalled cans range from 09/2011 to 06/2012.

Consumers who have purchased affected product should immediately discontinue feeding the product to their cats and switch to another product with a balanced nutritional profile. Cat owners using this product should monitor their cat for signs of thiamine deficiency, including a reduction in appetite or refusal of food, weight loss, vomiting or diarrhea, and salivation. Advanced signs of thiamine deficiency may include seizures, falling, circling, or downward curving of the neck. If your cat is pregnant or experiencing health issues, please make an appointment for an exam.

For further information or a product refund, call P&G toll-free at 877-340-8826 (Monday–Friday, 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM EST).

Remember, this affects only Iams ProActive Health Cat and Kitten Food in 3 oz. and 5.5 oz. cans marked with the dates identified above. For more detailed product information, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website.

Raw meat diet will never be recalled. Peace of mind is everything when it comes to the welfare of your precious four legged kids.

Why don't you post a recipe for a raw diet that's complete and balanced? List the supplements needed and proper preparation. People may misunderstand and toss some raw chicken necks or hamburger at their cats thinking it's a good complete diet.

I must have missed it. I can't recall seeing what additives were used in the raw meat. Newbies here may have missed it as well.

The best diet in the world for them would be fresh raw mice, small birds, snakes, lizards, rabbits, squirrels......... I can't even find fresh rabbit in the stores here.
