Cat Food Recall List

by Michael
(London, UK)

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 this...it 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.
