ORVILLE, Ohio – A massive recall of popular cat food brands is underway that may affect what your family pet is eating.

The company that produces the 9Lives, EverPet, and Special Kitty canned cat food brands has issued the voluntary recall due to the the possibility of low levels of thiamine or vitamin B1.

The J.M. Smucker products that have been recalled were shipped between Dec. 20 and Jan. 3.

A thiamine deficiency could develop in cats eating a low-thiamine diet, which could lead to a loss in appetite, weight loss or other, more serious conditions.
