Cat treats recalled due to contamination

Pet owners with cats must be aware of the latest product recall of kitty treats. Following a complaint by a consumer with a cat, the Food and Drug Administration tested a batch of cat treats manufactured by the Blue Buffalo Company and discovered levels of propylene glycol in a bag of treats sold as "Blue Kitty Yums Cat Treats."

The impacted lot was the chicken flavor treats. The company issued a statement that "Cats reacting to high doses of propylene glycol may exhibit signs of depression, . . . loss of coordination, muscle twitching, and excessive urination and thirst."

Although they have not received additional reports of any adverse incidents connected to the treats, the company agreed to "voluntarily [recall] all product" that was part of the same manufacturing lot as the tainted bag.

The press release indicated that the product recall is for treats packed in a plastic stand-up, 2 oz. pouch. The code dates of the affected product are:

-- Blue Kitty Yums Tasty Chicken Recipe, UPC: 859610007820 – Best If Used By: April 24, 2016.

-- Blue Kitty Yums Tasty Chicken Recipe, UPC: 859610007820 – Best If Used By: July 24, 2016.

Cats that consumed any of the recalled product that display the aforementioned symptoms should be examined by a veterinarian.

Pet food and treats are subject to recall when the product is tainted just as products made for humans are. While many people consider their pets to be family members, they are legally considered property but have a financial value to their owners just the same.

Compensation can be pursued for animals that are sickened or killed from consuming tainted food products.
