TAMPA , Florida (NEWS CENTER) - Diamond Pet Foods is recalling a number of cat food products in 25 states, Maine being among them.

The company has issued a voluntary recall of certain bags of:

-Premium Edge Finicky Adult Cat Formula dry cat food,
-Premium Edge Senior Cat Hairball Management Formula dry cat food,
-Premium Edge Kitten Formula dry cat food,
-Diamond Naturals Kitten Formula dry cat food
-4health All Life Stages Cat Formula dry cat food

Diamond Pet Foods says they conducted tests that indicated the products might have a low level of thiamine (Vitamin B1). They say either return the food or throw it away. Diamond says Thiamine is "an essential vitamin for cats in maintaining normal nervous system function. Symptoms of thiamine deficiency displayed by an affected cat can be gastrointestinal or neurological in nature. Early signs of thiamine deficiency may include decreased appetite, salivation, vomiting and weight loss. In advanced cases, neurological signs can develop, which may include cervical ventroflexion (bending towards the floor) of the neck, ataxia (difficulty walking), falling, circling and seizures."

Under the recall, Diamond says that if your pet is acting oddly, they urge you to take your pet to their vet right away.
