Purina cat food, recalled in France after serious infections

Purina cat food alert! Several ranges of the brand marketed in supermarkets are recalled.

The presence of traces of a residue (2-CE), resulting from the water treatment used by a Purina ingredient supplier, is suspected in the incriminated kibbles.

According to health authorities, they may have caused the death of several cats after ingestion. These cat food products were sold between November 2021 and April this year. They are valid until 2023.

Purina communicated this Wednesday, the brand wanted to remind “that the consumption of the batches concerned over a short period of a few weeks for PURINA ONE® and a few months for PURINA® PRO PLAN® does not impact the health of the cat. This statement is based on recognized scientific studies defining the tolerance of animals to 2-Chloroethanol. This makes it possible to establish the maximum concentration level of this residue not to be exceeded in cat food in order to ensure the safety of the products. The amount of residue found in our batches is much lower than this value (200 times lower than this value)”.
