Hill’s Pet Nutrition is recalling certain packs of cat food pouches because there are high levels of iron present in the pet food as a result of an error by an ingredient supplier. Your cat should not eat an affected product. The FSA is issuing this product recall notice because we are responsible for animal feed regulations and the enforcement of pet food labelling through local authorities.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition, the pet food company which sells this product, has started a recall of the affected products in all countries where they have been placed on the market, including a recall from pet owners, distributors and wholesalers, in local language on its country websites. This is as a precautionary measure following an error by an ingredient supplier, which resulted in 85g pouches being manufactured incorporating high levels of iron, some of which were packed into multipacks with unaffected products.

So what is the risk?

Iron is an essential nutrient in a cat’s diet but too much iron may cause digestive upset. If fed as the sole source of nutrition, this may have a more serious health effect, including diarrhoea and vomiting.
