Purina One Cat Food Recall

George J. DeVos Feb 14, 2016 My indoor cat family of five had just started a new bag of indoor Purina. The afternoon of the second day I found one of them dead. He was already rigid so must have died soon after his breakfast meal. I suspected he might have choked on breakfast since he was an aggressive food gobbler. I continued feeding the indoor Purina. Next day two of the survivors were staggering and crying in obvious distress. One recovered on his own and the other recovered at the vet. Finding many reports of death and illness associated with feeding Purina I began to suspect their food. Rather than discard two new bags of indoor Purina, I decided it best to return them to Walmart and tell them my reasons for doing so. These cats were seven and eight years old at the time, in robust health and never noticeably sick. A year and a half later they have had no more problems. I now buy more expensive cat food such as the Trader Joe brands but I have fed other brands as well, just no more Purina or any related brands. Certain indoor formulas have recently been found to contain too much vitamin D which can become toxic when ingested in excessive amounts. This would certainly explain my experience and I would never risk buying any “indoor” formula again. This is all purely anecdotal but it is evidence even if circumstantial. No pet parent would feed Purina after what I experienced. After trusting this old brand for decades, I no longer use it, and that goes double for so-called “indoor” formulas of any brand. Reply

Pet Owner Jan 27, 2015 This is the absolute HOLD Purina has on its customers! If the numbers don’t match the suspected ones, then carry on! DON’T. For that Rep to call somebody back in 20 minutes and recommend not feeding the food, means something is truly UP. And it’s called Purina’s liability. They’re just waiting for a lawsuit to materialize. So DON’T let them conveniently pick up the food. They might test it alright. But nobody will ever hear about it. They just want the evidence to disappear. They just want corroborated cases to vanish. If you want to strike fear in their hearts claim you’re going to have the UN-opened cans tested by an independent lab, and that you’ll have those results forwarded to the FDA. That ought to catch Purina’s attention. Bet’cha they’ll offer you a whole bunch of coupons now, maybe even a free can or two of food. Wow! Instead go back to that Retail Store, and let them know what’s really “up” so they can warn other customers. If they don’t want to cooperate, then review the store on-line, and re-tell this story. They have just as much responsibility to be selling a safe product, as the manufacturer, and if they don’t back it up the line (refusing to carry the brand) then it will never hurt Purina. For the last time, due to diet, no pet should NOT be eating for 6 days, or be vomiting food and/or showing diarrhea. If that’s happening then you’ve got a very sick pet you never know what is happening to their internal organs. Please give Purina a rest for heaven’s sake. Reply

Purina One Cat Food Recall

I purchased a brand new bag of Purina indoor Cat Chow. My cats are strictly indoor pets. Upon feeding my cats the Purina, my old 7 year old cat got diarrhea later in the day and my youngest 1 year old cat began vomiting. After vomiting he became lethargic and tried eating again later in the day, and threw up again. It was then I realized it was the food, Purina made my cats sick. I had to take him in for care and hand force feed him kitty milk with a dropper until he began to eat again. I’m banning All Purina brands. I’m lucky my little cat pulled through his ordeal.

Purina One Cat Food Recall

While the Purina Cat Chow warning has spread across sites like Facebook, the original poster has not yet issued an update stating whether a cause of death for her cat was ever confirmed. And although a large number of pet owners have ascribed their cats’ or dogs’ illnesses to recent consumption of Purina products, no illnesses or pet deaths have recently been positively linked to the brand. Many of the pet owners reporting cat illnesses surmised Purina products were to blame, but no causal connection between Purina Cat Chow and pet illness has been documented despite the brand’s widespread consumption by American cats.

Pre-2004 recalls: Purina pet foods have been around a very long time, so there certainly have been earlier recalls, which are not listed below. For example, our research turned up a 1978 recall of Purina Cat Chow because of possible contamination with PCBs — a nasty cancer-causing chemical. We also found a 1983 recall of 150 cans of cat food that Ralston Purina Co. had mistakenly labeled “Chicken of the Sea,” which consumers (and probably grocery store employees) naturally mistook for cans of tuna for people. Although those historic recalls are fascinating, this website tracks only the recall events that have taken place since about 2005.

Purina One Cat Food Recall

Patrick Mar 22, 2016 Found what appeared to be small pieces of black plastic and rubber in 2 separate cans of Friskies Turkey and Giblets 13 oz cans from the 1157 plant. These cans came from cases and had best by dates of October 2017, and the 2nd batch had best by dates of December 2017. Have already sent them the first batch of pieces and parts. They did refund my money for the remaining cans I had on the first occasion. I have stopped using their product for the strays I feed that people have dumped around my house. Am waiting for the 2nd letter they are sending me to send in the last piece of plastic I found and for the refund check for the 2nd batch. They did tell me I could check back with them in about 6 weeks and they would give me the results of their investigation. How they handle this will determine if I will eventually decide to use their products again. Had a problem with their Fancy Feast Classic Chicken about 1 year ago which made all of my indoor cats vomit. Luckily the place I bought them refunded the money on the unused cans. It seems the quality control of the Fancy Feast has deteriorated lately from batch to batch, as my cats no longer seem to care for it as much as before. Looking for an alternate solution for all of them. Considering Wellness Chicken, but is much more expensive than the Purina Turkey and Giblets, and slightly more expensive than the Fancy Feast. Am looking for a balance on cost/quality and using the cat food nutritional composition chart compiled by Lisa A. Pierson, DVM. Above Reposted from a different comment section. What type of food was it, Purina, Fancy Feast? What size cans? I am changing food for all mine. No more Purina until I hear back from them, and even then, probably not going to feed them Purina again.

Yes. In March 2016, 5 varieties of Pro Plan wet dog food sold in tubs were recalled because of inadequate vitamin/mineral levels. Also, in summer 2013, Purina voluntarily recalled a batch of Purina ONE dog food for suspected salmonella contamination. A year earlier, a single lot of Purina Veterinary Diets OM Overweight Management Feline Formula was recalled because of levels of thiamine that were deemed to be too low. Also, twice in 2011, certain Purina dry cat foods were recalled for suspected salmonella contamination. For full details about these recalls, please see the list below.
