Cat food recalled following health scare

The Best Feline Friend range of cat food, made by an American manufacturer, has been recalled from Australian pet owners, following reports that it has made pets ill.

As the SMH reports, the move follows posts made on online forums by pet owners that claimed their pets became ill after consuming the ‘gourmet’ products.

The products are distributed in Australia by Petbarn.

Weruva posted a statement on its website which reads: “We have recently been made aware of select Best Feline Friend (BFF) canned foods, exclusive to the Australian market, which may have been produced outside of intended formulation guidelines.

“Out of an abundance of caution and in partnership with our exclusive retailer of these goods, Petbarn has removed BFF canned items from shelves in Australia until our analysis is complete. The facility for this exclusive BFF canned food does not produce BFF foods for any other global market or any other Weruva-branded foods.”

Petbarn said on its Facebook page that it would refund all purchases of the products.
