Ingesting impacted product may cause nausea with excessive salivation, diarrhea or vomiting to more severe symptoms including difficulty walking, seizures and, in extreme situations, death. Pet parents are encouraged to contact their cat’s veterinarian immediately if their cat is displaying any of these symptoms.

These products are sold in grocery stores nationwide and online. No other Special Kitty® products are impacted by this recall. The investigation thus far indicates that the impacted product appears to have been manufactured during a single day. The Company is continuing to investigate the situation to minimize the chance of future concerns.

Pet parents with product questions should call 888-569-6767 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET. If pet parents would like to share information about this recall with the FDA they are encouraged to do so through the agency’s reporting portal: https://www.safetyreporting.hhs.gov/.

This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
