MadCat's Initial Press-Release:
Cat Food Recalled After Kidney Failure, Deaths
Madison, Wisconsin, March 18th, 2007 — MadCat Pet Supplies today removed selected three-ounce pouches of Nutro moist cat food from our shelves after learning of animal deaths correlated to the feeding of products sharing the same ingredient source, particularly wheat-gluten. Although many Iams and Eukanuba moist foods have also been included in the recall, the affected products are not carried in our stores.
MadCat will exchange or refund any purchases of affected product without hassle. We encourage any users of Nutro pouch products to check the expiration dates and return any products that expires in December ’08 or later. Exchanges are possible even if the product was not purchased at MadCat.
At MadCat we take the health and nutrition of cats and dogs seriously. We take the well-being of our clients and their companions seriously. We recommend grain-free nutrition for a reason. Whether it is Go Natural, Chicken Soup, Iams, Nutro, or Authority (PetSmart's private-label), every food-poisoning issue we have seen comes from grain-related toxicity.
