Has 4health Ever Been Recalled?
Yes. In 2013 Diamond, the manufacturer of 4health, recalled several varieties of cat food including 4health because of potentially too low levels of thiamine, an essential vitamin (B1) for cats. In 2012, Diamond also recalled all brands of 4health pet food manufactured in its Gaston, South Carolina, facility because of potential salmonella contamination.
More recently, in late June 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified 4health as one of 16 pet food brands that may be linked to heart disease in dogs and cats. None of those 16 brands have been recalled as part of the agency’s ongoing investigation, though. Most, but not all, of the pet foods are “grain-free” and/or dry (kibble) dog food formulations. The FDA says this is a “complex scientific issue that may involve multiple factors,” and that it cannot even be certain that diet is a cause of the heart problems. For full details, see our article on the subject.
