Nutro recalls two cat-food products

22-05-2009 | |

Nutro Products is voluntarily recalling its Natural Choice® and MAX® cat foods due to incorrect levels of zinc and potassium.

"Two mineral premixes were affected," the company explained in a prepared statement. "One premix contained excessive levels of zinc and under-supplemented potassium. The second premix under-supplemented potassium.

This issue was identified during an audit of our documentation from the supplier," the company reports. "An extensive review confirmed that only these two premixes were affected."

As a result of the recall, the company says it will focus on stricter quality checks of its suppliers.

The recall follows an FDA-issued statement last month rebutting media reports about the company’s products being the subject of an inquiry.
