Blue Buffalo Co. is voluntarily recalling a small production of Blue Kitty Yums Chicken Recipe Cat Treats that could contain low levels of propylene glycol, which is not permitted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in cat food, according to a company release. Cats who have ingested high doses of propylene glycol may exhibit signs of depression and may experience a loss of coordination, muscle twitching, excessive urination and thirst.

The affected product was distributed nationwide in the United States and Canada through pet specialty stores and e-commerce. It is packaged in a 2-oz plastic standup pouch and is limited to the code dates listed below, according to the release.

Blue Kitty Yums Tasty Chicken Recipe, UPC: 859610007820—best if used by April 24, 2016.
Blue Kitty Yums Tasty Chicken Recipe, UPC: 859610007820—best if used by July 24, 2016.

No other Blue pet foods or treats are involved in this recall. The FDA tested product in response to a singular complaint and found propylene glycol in one bag of cat treats in the impacted lot. Out of caution the company is recalling all treats manufactured in the same lot as the subject bag, the release states.

Consumers who have purchased the product being recalled can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund or contact Blue Buffalo with questions by calling 888-667-1508, or emailing [email protected].
