The earliest these products were available for sale in the UK and the Republic of Ireland is December 2015. Due to an error by an ingredient supplier, the products contain high levels of iron.

If you have any of these products at home, please do not feed them to your cat and consult your veterinarian in case of concern. For more information and a full list of products with the specific “Best Before Dates” affected please click here.
