Cats that consume low levels of thiamine as apart of their diet can develop a Vitamin B1 deficiency. Symptoms may include gastrointestinal or neurological issues. Early signs of thiamine deficiency include decreased appetite, salivation , vomiting, failure to grow, and weight loss.

Some cases of low thiamine levels may develop into ventroflexion , which causes the neck of a cat to bend towards the floor as well as mental dullness, blindness, wobbly walking, circling, falling, seizures, and sudden death.

J.M. Smucker urges pet owners that see any of these symptoms in their cat to seek medical assistance from a veterinarian. If treated quickly, the effects of thiamine deficiency can be reversed in cats, the company said.

Pet owners should stop feeding their cats the recalled cat food and dispose of the product. To receive a refund for the cat food or coupon for replacement cans, consumers can complete an online form found on the J.M. Smucker website. Consumers can also call the company at 1-888-569-6828, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST.

J.M. Smucker said there have been no reports of illness from the recalled cat food. The company made the recall “out of an abundance of caution.” The low thiamine levels were discovered through internal product testing.

J.M. Smucker is conducting the recall in conjunction with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
