says the recall affects some 9Lives, EverPet and Special Kitty canned cat foods due to possible low levels of thiamine.
Updated on 01/10/2017: I actually called 9Lives and asked if they had expanded their recall. The woman said no and I told her about my cat throwing up after eating 9Lives and then he didn't want to eat again. He would try, then throw up and not go back to the food. This food was the chicken and also the Super Supper one. She asked me if I had taken him to a vet, which I was going to call them today until he acted better and kept the Friskies food down. I gave her the can number and she said that it wasn't in the list. I said, I know but maybe it should be? She said that she doubted it was the food and because I hadn't had a vet confirm that, it wasn't possible. I asked if it would be worth checking into to see if something was wrong and she pooh-poohed that.
Orrville, OH – The J.M. Smucker Company today announced a limited voluntary recall on certain lots of 9LivesTM, EverPetTM, and Special KittyTM canned cat food due to possible low levels of thiamine (Vitamin B1).
9 Lives Meaty Pate Super Supper Canned Cat Food, 5.5-oz
Canned cat food recall includes 9Lives, EverPet, Special Kitty -
When you buy commercially-prepared food for your cat, it’s because you trust a company that sells pet food to make meals that are nutritious for our feline friends. Some canned cat food from the brands 9Lives, EverPet, and Special Kitty fell short, being deficient in a vitamin that’s essential to cats, and have been recalled. For a period of time in the 1970s and 1980s, 9Lives used from the cartoon series in its advertising. These ads usually consisted of Sylvester trying to get to his box of 9Lives dry food while avoiding . Sylvester would always succeed in luring the dog away so he could get to his food, but would always find himself a target again by the end of the commercial. Sylvester would always call 9Lives dry food "worth riskin' your life for." (Sylvester never appeared in commercials for 9Lives canned cat food and was eventually replaced by Morris for dry food commercials.)I just adopted a cute cat and bought 9Lives canned cat food. Just want to check the quality of the food and I found this website. I went through all the reviews and was shocked about the bad reviews. However, my cat seems to love 9Lives better than the other cat food I bought her so I feed her half and half. It didn't go well for long. On the 5th day I fed her, as usual, after she was done, she came to my bedroom and jumped on my bed, then she threw up the whole food she ate. I dumped the rest of 9Lives and started to fed her other food. Now she is all well and has not thrown up since then. When the majority said the food is bad, you should believe that. Lesson learned the hard way...Ok, this is getting old. I changed my 18-year old cat to 9Lives and now I have 12 cans of wet cat food with 1 teaspoon of food inside the can. Come on who is letting this happen? I'm on a fixed income, I'm 54 years old, baby is 18 (88 in her years). I want nothing but the best for her and I don't need my $$$ to be wasted like this. I buy by the month so now I am running out because none of the cans are full of the food. It's the Meaty Pate Super Supper and the Hearty Cuts with Real Chicken & Fish in Gravy - all of them have 1 teaspoon of food in the can. I was told you was a good co., and made good healthy food for cats. Well no one said you would charge full price for 1 teaspoon in each can you buy. I'm so disappointed with 9Lives at this time, and I will let all my cat friends on Facebook know about this. Thank you for screwing me over.
