Cat Food Recalled over Potential Link to Rare and Fatal Disease

In the News

Sainsbury’s and Pets at Home are among the retailers recalling dry cat food over a potential link to an outbreak of a rare and fatal disease in cats.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Defra are advising cat owners not to give their pets food made on behalf of the brands by manufacturer Fold Hill as a precaution.

It follows more than 130 cases of feline pancytopenia, an illness that can often be fatal in cats, since April, the FSA said.

I don't feed my cats any of the foods on the list, but I think it's good they're taking this precautionary measure while they investigate.
