Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

Iams Recall Written By: Susan Thixton 11-26-2011 Categorized in: Pet Food Recall Thanks to TAPF friend the Food Bug Lady (aka Phyllis Entis/, there seems to be an Iams pet food recall. I could find no notice of this on the Iams website or the FDA website. Here are the details... The Price Chopper website states the following... "Select Varieties Iams Pet Foods (recalled Nov. 25, 2011) Iams Original with Chicken Cat Food UPC 1901403915 Lot Number 12794177D3 Size 6.8 lbs. Iams Original with Chicken Cat Food UPC 1901410504 Lot Number 12794177I5 Size 4 lbs. Iams Lamb Meal with Rice Dog Food UPC 1901403735 Lot Number 12794177J4 Size 15 lbs. Reason for Recall: The product is being recalled due to elevated aflotoxin levels." 'Elevated aflatoxin levels' could be a very dangerous situation. Here is some additional information on aflatoxin/mycotoxins:

    More info on this is listed here, it was a "silent recall", otherwise known in the pet food industry as a product pull. It is scary that these things are not published. The Truth About Pet Food, the Iams recall

    At the moment I am glad I was driven away from IAMS by a PETA video I saw years ago, never learned if any of that was true or not but I have never purchased any IAMS product because of it. How does anyone know not to feed any they bought before the recall was made? That's a lawsuit waiting to happen.
