“Nature’s Variety Recalls Selected Bags Of Instinct Rabbit Meal Formula Grain Free Kibble Diet For Cats
Nature’s Variety has issued a voluntary recall of two date codes and two sizes of Nature’s Variety Instinct Rabbit Meal Formula grain free kibble for cats. Nature’s Variety recently discovered that some bags of its Instinct Rabbit Meal Formula kibble for cats may contain small pieces of ground sorghum in the product. While this presents no health risk to the cats being fed this product, the company says that this formulation is not consistent with Instincts grain free standards or Nature’s Variety’s insistence upon meeting the highest standards of integrity for all products.
According to Nature’s Variety, very little of this kibble has made it to the market, and there is no health risk to people or pets. However, any consumer who has the affected product should stop feeding it to their cat, and return it to their retailer for a refund.
The two lot codes of Nature’s Variety Instinct Rabbit Meal Formula grain free kibble diet for cats affected by the recall are:
UPC# 7 69949-60385 6 5.5 lb. best if used by 09/28/11
UPC# 7 69949-60381 8 12.1 lb. best if used by 09/29/11″
Note: Interesting that this information was not posted on the Nature’s Variety web site. It was only emailed to SOME retailers….I’ve got to wonder what they’re trying to hide. Unfortunately transparency and consistency in reporting to consumers is still lacking from Nature’s Variety. Not a company I’d put my trust in for my animals.
