Three Purina brand kibbles for cats and kittens have been recalled. Cases of diarrhoea, vomiting and anorexia have been observed in several kittens in certain shelters in France.
Lots nº1325091108, nº1351091108, nº1324091104 and nº1325091106 sold from November 20, 2021 to April 13, 2022 in bags of 400 grams, 3 and 10 kilos, must imperatively be removed from their bowl.
Same procedure for the Purina One sachet made with selected chicken for kittens from 1 to 12 months. This time, batches nº1352091106 and nº1353091106 marketed December 18, 2021 to April 13, 2021 must not be eaten by your cat.
Purina Pro Plan Salmon Rich Sachets for sterilized adult cats may also cause digestive issues in their body. Lots nº1324091108, nº1324091104 and nº1325091106 are affected by this product recall. These croquettes were sold in several models: a bag of 400 grams, a bag of 3 kilos and a bag of 10 kilos + 2 kilos offered.
In the Normandy region, several distribution sites are affected by this product recall. If you purchased one of these kibble packets for your cat from one of these stores, you can return it for a refund.
Diarrhea, vomiting, anorexia
Several shelter managers interviewed by France3 report the same side effects observed on cats who have eaten these kibbles.
“I got a kitten last week, in perfect health. A few days later, he had diarrhea, he couldn’t eat. I took him to the vet, he was hospitalized. When I picked him up, he was fine. Monday morning he was vomiting yellow bile. I did a typhus test which came back negative. By the time I took him to the vet again, he was dying and he died.” describes a shelter president.
“I also had a two-month-old kitten adopted on Friday July 8, he was in great shape. The next day, he was a vegetable in hypothermia and he had trouble breathing. He is in hospital, but he risks dying like the first. she continues.
For another shelter manager, the problem comes from these bags from the Purina Pro brand: “All the foster families to whom I provided these kibbles, the kittens had diarrhea right away. (…) When you change kibble, the animal is no longer sick”.
