Pets at Home Recall

Pets at Home Recall

PFMA is aware that Pets at Home have recalled 4 lines of its AVA dry cat food. This was due to lower thiamine levels (Vitamin B1) than specified in the recipe leading to a small number of cats becoming unwell.

PFMA is aware that Pets at Home have recalled 4 lines of its AVA dry cat food.  This was due to lower thiamine levels (Vitamin B1) than specified in the recipe leading to a small number of cats becoming unwell. 

The AVA range is manufactured in the UK and sold exclusively at Pets at Home. Cats should not eat affected batches and more detail including batch codes etc. is available on the Pets at Home website.  We are very pleased to hear that the unwell cats are now on the mend.  

We would like to reassure pet owners that all diets manufactured by PFMA members are carefully formulated in line with the FEDIAF (European Pet Food Federation) Nutritional Guidelines.  These Guidelines detail the nutritional needs of cats and dogs at varying life-stages and are based on existing peer reviewed scientific literature.  They provide lists of the recommended nutrient levels for dog and cat foods and are reviewed by independent veterinary experts throughout Europe.  Such guidelines, along with a raft of stringent legislation, are in place to ensure that the food produced meets both food safety and nutritional requirements.
