RECALL: Primal Pet Foods recalls raw frozen cat food

    Company voluntarily recalling single lot due to low thiamine levels

    Primal Pet Foods is voluntarily recalling a single batch production code of Feline Turkey Raw Frozen Formula 3-pound bag. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tested product in response to a single consumer complaint. Primal Pet Foods was alerted by FDA that the testing of two bags of this lot resulted in a low thiamine level. Neither FDA nor Primal have received any other reports concerning thiamine in Primal products. No other product manufactured by Primal Pet Foods is involved in this voluntary recall.
    Only the product with the following Best By date and production code is included in the recall:
    Primal Pet Foods Feline Turkey Raw Frozen Formula 3-pound bag (UPC# 8 50334-00414 0) with Best By date 060815 B22
    "Primal takes very seriously the need for adequate thiamine levels in our feline diets," said the company. "We include organic quinoa sprout powder as a natural B-complex supplement to ensure that adequate levels of thiamine are met. Additionally, thiamine occurs naturally in other ingredients contained in our Feline Turkey Formula, such as turkey muscle meat (including heart), turkey liver, organic sunflower seeds, dried organic kelp, organic collard greens and organic squash."
    Consumers who still have bags of cat food from this lot should stop feeding it to their cats and call Primal at 866.566.4652 Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. PST. Consumers with further questions should visit the company's website at or call at the same number.
