Cat Food Recall List

Melamine Powder

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

Melamine Powder

This cat food recall list is current as at April 2009. It concerns the USA and the source is the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The list is long and relates, as I understand it, to the melamine in cat food (and other companion animal foods) scandal that rocked America in the middle of 2007. The effects of that are still being felt.

As at Feb 6th 2008, the two Chinese exporters of the tainted food ingredient (gluten contaminated with melamine) and the American importer (the company, the President and CEO) have been indicted by a federal grand jury.

The cat food products affected are listed below. Links to the individual products can be seen on the FDA site on this page - Pet Food Recall List:

i recently bought a bag of the Evolve cat food at Walmart- it was the only one there. now i have just seen this on the recall list. Is it still being recalled? Or is this just an old list?

Hi, The thing is is more (u>likely that a cat's illness is caused by simple ill health and not the cat food because cat food recalls are relatively rare, thankfully.

That said, if you want to make sure you will have to see a vet and have some tests carried out which might not appeal to you because of cost.

Is there any particular reason why you think the illness might be due to the cat food?

My cat eats GoodLife Recipe but she has also had Iams for older cats.She has become some what sick this year by having muscle attacks.And loss of a great deal of weight. Can you help me if in market cat food might be the reason for these attacks?I now cook her meals every day.

  1. Michael, as you know, things can change quickly in this category, especially when large companies take over others. There is a site that does keep up with these things, and contacts manufacturers. I recommend that pet guardians check out, and subscribe to “Petsumer” report, which is continually updated with new information.

    Remember, most pet foods are made with dead and diseased dogs, cats, and other animals, including non-descript tissue. When euthanized shelter animals are ground up, their collars remain on so that all goes into the mix. There’s a surveillance YouTube video that was taken showing this “difficult truth”.

    Euthanized animals have DRUGS that also end up in the pet food.

  2. If you’re feeding a “prescription diet” (Royal Canin,
    Hill’s, Science Diet) take a good look at the ingredients, after you’ve informed yourself of what to look for.

    You may be in for a shock as the “difficult truth” will be revealed.

    “Prescription diets” are not really healthy, as you will discover. But they do help the vet’s profit.

    Do you know that the nutritional education that vets get in school are presented by Hills, and Royal Canin? What foods will the vets promote? Take a guess. It’s really no different than the drug pushing M.D.s who get benefits from the drug companies.

    Loving your cat means getting informed about what you’re feeding them. I know that dry food is more convenient and inexpensive. What they eat matters. It will catch up with them, and you will end up paying vet bills to try to save their life. “PAY NOW or PAY LATER”

  3. For every animal is different, Royal Canin provides adapted nutritional answers for your animal. Royal Canin focus totally on the animal, with the aim of improving daily life and ensuring better health for dogs and cats through nutrition.
