There are reports of problems with Weruva Pet Food (BFF varieties) with cats in Australia. The company has reached out to TruthaboutPetFood.com multiple times trying to keep consumers updated. Here is what I know…
From the Weruva Facebook page:
Important announcement from Weruva:
We are aware of a small number of cats in Australia with health concerns, and we are researching any potential link to BFF canned foods unique to the Australian market. Out of an abundance of caution we have issued a Stop Sale Notice for BFF canned foods in Australia only. Once we receive test results and more information, we can quickly provide further updates. Customers outside of Australia, please be assured that all Weruva foods remain a safe choice.
Since this is a developing issue we have limited confirmed facts, and we want to keep you informed of the actions we are taking. We ask that you contact us directly at email@example.com or call us at 1-800-108-382 from Australia or at 1-800-776-5262 from North America. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
The Weruva website includes the same message on the opening page.
News reports from Australia on the cats illnesses – (it is unknown how many pets have become ill) have stated the pet food is manufactured in the US. This is incorrect per Weruva. The pet food in question was manufactured in Thailand and these varieties were only shipped to Australia (none of these varieties of pet food were shipped elsewhere).
Weruva has contacted me twice today (Sunday 5/7/17) regarding the problem in Australia – and I thank them for the transparency. When more is learned about the situation, it will be shared.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
