According to the J.M. Smucker Company, Thiamine is “essential for cats,” and the low levels in the recalled cat food could cause cats to develop a thiamine deficiency, which is typically reversible.

Symptoms of thiamine deficiency include: decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting, and weight loss, and ventroflexion (bending towards the floor) of the neck, wobbly walking, circling, falling, and seizures in advanced cases.

Those who have cans of cat food from the impacted lots should stop feeding it to their cats and call the J.M. Smucker Company at 1-800-828-9980 Monday through Friday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. or contact consumer.relations@jmsmucker.com.
