Symptoms of excessive vitamin D consumption usually develop within 12-36 hours after ingestion and may include vomiting or diarrhea, increased thirst and urination, and muscle tremors or seizures. Any cat experiencing these symptoms should be taken to a veterinarian immediately.

Two variety packs that contain some of these recalled products (the Chicken Lovers Variety Pack, and the Ocean Lovers Variety Pack) will also be recalled. The recalled products are distributed nationwide. No other Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® products are affected by this recall.

    Confused! Is RR wet food made in This land or Pennsylvania? I know Ainsworth makes her dry food.

        The canned food is made in Thailand, the dry in the US (by Ainsworth.)

    Was going to purchase with coupons but not now. This probably the reason PetSmart does not carry it.

    Thanks for the info. The wet food was the only thing my cat would consistently eat…and then it suddenly disappeared. So the frustration was over when I finally came upon your explanation as to why!

    I only feed my cats the Rachel Ray nutress Dry food. I no the recall was only on the wet food but i am affaid now of all of her foods. Are you absolutely sure that both dry foods are safe. I have the chicken & brown rice and the salmon and brown rice both dry food. Please let me know asap.

      I am not affiliated with Rachael Ray, and can’t comment on the safety of their dry food. The sad reality is that there is no way to be 100% sure about any food being completely safe, whether it’s for our pets or humans.

    I was very satisfied with the dry food I was feeding my cat. When I saw the wet food I was anxious to feed it to her and she loved it. Now it is not good for her I have all the ones mentioned. I can’t afford to throw money in the garbage. Can we get some kind of refund for our money. The wet food in my supermarket cost $1.00 each. And I am currently between jobs so every dollar is precious right now. Thank you for your help in this matter.

      Please contact Rachael Ray Nutrish through their website for information about refunds. I’m not affiliated with the company.

    You can go to the US Food & Drug Administration and sign up for all types of recalls including pet food recalls. If you care about your animals, I would suggest you sign up. I received the email today notifying me of this recall. I thought we could trust U. S. pet food manufacturers – evidently not!

      I believe Rachael Ray’s diets are made in Thailand, but recalls, unfortunately, can happen and have happened even with foods made in the US (in fact, the majority of recent recalls have been for US made foods.) Sadly, there’s probably no way to guarantee that our food supply, or our pets’, is ever going to be completely safe unless we grow and make our own food.
