About this deal

Our cats are part of our families and as pet owners, we understand that you want to make sure that your feline is getting the best possible nutrition that also tastes irresistibly good. This is why we’ve developed a wide range of diets to suit all felines and their unique requirements. We’ve got everything from dry cat food, wet cat food, special diets and even treats, all from the Purina brands you know and love. Browse our full range of cat food today! Fold Hill Foods Ltd., has issued the recall notice for the above-mentioned cat foods because “there is concern over the safety of the products listed.” Put simply, a significant number of cats in the UK have recently become ill with a health condition called pancytopenia (and in some cases, related illnesses). This is usually an incredibly rare condition; the average UK veterinary clinic might see one, or no, cases of this a year. If you feed or have fed your cat one of the foods specifically listed above, you must stop feeding it to them immediately. You might understandably wish to speak to your vet, even if your cat appears to be fine, about the risk of illness. Yes, wet cat food is cooked! To make the delicious taste that your cats love, the carefully selected ingredients are blended with cooked meat and then mixed in with jelly or gravy. Of course, this could also be blended into a delicious cat food pâté. Is cat food halal?

All of the cat foods affected by the recall to date (as of 20th June 2021) are dry cat foods manufactured by a company called Fold Hill Foods Ltd. These are regarding a potential association between some of the foods within these ranges, and serious illness in a small but significant number of cats that are fed them.While this is unlikely to be hugely reassuring if it is your cat you have to worry about, it is by no means inevitable or even statistically likely based on what we know so far, that your individual cat will get ill. Your rights and additional information Purina cat food is not certified as Halal. This categorisation is applied mainly to human foods. Should cat food and water be together?

Only certain specific cat foods from within each of these ranges is affected by the recall, not every variant of cat food within their ranges. The recall notice for AVA cat food applies to all of the following dry cat food types, and applies to every batch number and best before date. This means if you feed your cat any of these foods, they are affected by the recall. Not just cats at your place? As well as catering to your dog’s needs, we’ve got your other animals covered too, with food, toys and accessories for fish, rabbits and birds. We’ve even got food for your local garden wildlife like hedgehogs and sparrows. Cat or dog food recalls in the UK are very uncommon, because we hold pet food manufacturers to the same high standards we do for food designed for our own consumption. However, there’s currently a very large-scale cat food recall in place in the UK (June 2021) affecting a number of product lines (but not complete ranges) sold under the Applaws, By Sainabury’s, and AVA cat food brands respectively. This means that there is not as yet definitive evidence that these foods caused the illness; but sufficient suspicion to warrant a recall pending a definitive conclusion. What should I do if I have been feeding my cat one of the recalled foods?And because we know playtime is essential for every pet's happiness, we've curated a collection of pet toys that'll keep your furry pals entertained for hours. From interactive toys that challenge their minds to squeaky ones that bring endless joy, we've got something for a variety of pets’ playstyles. However, in the last few weeks alone, over 200 cases of pancytopenia have been confirmed, with others under investigation. The only common factor across the cats that have been diagnosed with the condition is that they were fed one of the three above-mentioned food types, which in turn, are all made by Fold Hill Foods, and at one specific facility. To find out more about the UK cat food recall for AVA, Applaws, and By Sainsbury’s, plus details of which foods from each brand are affected and why, read on. What cat foods have been recalled to date? We also have dog and puppy food that's paw-sitively delicious. Our barking good blends will make your furry friends drool with delight and beg for seconds. After all, they deserve nothing but the most fetching flavours.

Purr-fectly pamper your feline friend with our selection of luxury cat food. Made with some of the finest ingredients, it will leave your cat purring with satisfaction. From tuna-rrific treats to salmon sensations, our gourmet options are the cat's whiskers! It is important to note that while any cat owner who found they had inadvertently been feeding their cat a food involved in a recall due to suspicions of it causing serious illness will be very concerned, the vast majority of cats fed these foods have suffered no ill effects.Ava is an own-brand product made for and sold only in Pets At Home, and the By Sainsbury’s food is sold only in Sainsbury’s supermarkets. Applaws is widely sold by many retailers in the UK. However, Fold Hill Foods Ltd is a manufacturer, not a brand; and they produce cat food for several different UK brands, and three of these are affected. These are Applaws, AVA, and By Sainsbury’s respectively. Make sure your cats are entertained by swinging by our pet toys section. From squeaky cuddly toys to bouncy balls, we’ve got everything you need to keep them occupied. (Although, being cats, they might prefer playing in the boxes the toys come in!)

It’s a good idea to keep water and food separately. Your cat might not like the smell of their food whilst they’re drinking water and they also won’t like anything in their water (like bits of wet food or dust). Should cat food be refrigerated? There are only two By Sainsbury’s cat foods named within the recall, both of hypoallergenic cat foods. Again, the recall notice applies to any batch number or best before date for the foods in question. If your cat does become ill or you have any suspicions about their health, call your vet right away and inform them of the relevance of their diet and the recall; all UK vets are aware of the recall, the association with pancytopenia, and the risks involved.
