    This is absolutely false information. Propolyne Glycol is found in many foods human and pet food. Get your facts straight!

    • Linda Larsen says:

      Propylene glycol is not permitted in cat food, according to the FDA. Cats are very sensitive to this ingredient and ingesting it can cause Heinz body anemia, a condition that destroys red blood cells in the animal. If the red blood count gets low enough, the cat can die. The cat may exhibit symptoms such as stumbling, seizures, tremors, and disorientation as a result of ingesting this chemical. Propylene glycol is allowed in some dog foods, but if the levels of this chemical are too high, dogs can get sick as well.

      And all of our recall information comes straight from the FDA or the USDA. The “facts” are correct.
