VitaKitty Cat Food Label -- Vitakitty Chicken Breast subject to limited recall
Recalled cat food treats come from lot codes SEW12CH032701/03c with a best before date of 9/10/13 and SEW12CH032702/03c with a best before date of 9/11/13.
Los Angeles-based Arthur Dogswell LLC is voluntarily recalling 1,051 cartons of Catswell brand VitaKitty Chicken Breast with Flaxseed and Vitamins cat food because the product could contain propylene glycol from  glycerin found in a vitamin E supplement used during manufacturing.

Propylene glycol in high levels causes anemia in cats. No illnesses have been reported.

The VitaKitty cartons in question were distributed nationwide via retail and mail order outlets from April 13 through June 14, 2012.

The recalled treats were packaged in a resealable 2-ounce orange plastic bag with a clear window.

The lot codes, found on the back side of each package, include:
•             SEW12CH032701/03c with a best before date of 9/10/13
•             SEW12CH032702/03c with a best before date of 9/11/13

The recall followed a routine surveillance sample collected by Arthur Dogswell and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

“We are taking this voluntary action because it is in the best interests of our customers and their feline companions,” said Marco Giannini, the company's CEO and founder.

Customers with recalled VitaKitty should return it to the store for a full refund. Online retailers should be contacted for information about return and refund policies.

Anyone with questions may contact Arthur Dogswell at 888-559-8833 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PDT Monday through Friday.

I THINK IT'S PATHETIC THAT FOR THE MONEY YOU SPEND ON HIGH END PET FOOD, YOU CAN'T RELY ON IT BEING SAFE FOR YOUR BABIES. YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO BE ON GUARD AND PAY ATTENTION NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU SPEND. I MIGHT EXPECT THIS FROM A CHEAP FOOD, BUT YOU WOULD THINK MORE CARE WOULD BE TAKEN WITH FOODS THAT COST A SMALL FORTUNE.
