Natura Pet Products issued a voluntary recall of some of its EVO dry cat and dry ferret food, citing a formulation error that resulted in insufficient levels of vitamins and excess minerals.
Pets that consume the food over a prolonged period could become ill, the company said in a press release. Early warning signs of a vitamin deficiency can include decreased appetite, lethargy, vomiting and weight loss. In most cases, if treated promptly a vitamin deficiency can be corrected.
The Nebraska-based company said the presence of excess minerals in the recalled products poses no health concern. There are 5 lots of the food that are affected by the recall.
So far, there have been no reports of animal health concerns to date, the company said.
