For those of you with cats or who feed your ferrets cat treats and use products by Blue Buffalo Company, check your cupboards. On November 6, Blue Buffalo Company issued a voluntary recall of some of its Blue Kitty Yums Chicken Recipe cat treats.
The affected products have “best if used by” dates of April 24, 2016 and July 24, 2016. The UPC code for both is 859610007820. These products were sold in the United States and Canada through brick and mortar stores and online retailers. The product comes in 2-ounce pouches.
The recall states that:
“Cats reacting to high doses of propylene glycol may exhibit signs of depression and may have a loss of coordination, muscle twitching, and excessive urination and thirst. If your cat has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.”
Additionally, the Blue Buffalo recall notes:
“The FDA tested product in response to a single consumer complaint and found propylene glycol in one bag of our cat treats in the impacted lot. To date we have had no other reports of incidents related to our cat treats. Out of an abundance of caution, we are voluntarily recalling all product manufactured in the same lot as the subject bag.”
Those who have any of the recalled product can get a refund by returning it to the place of purchase. For more information, contact Blue Buffalo directly via phone or email: 888-667-1508 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday; email BlueBuffalo5883@stericycle.com
