Has Special Kitty Ever Been Recalled?

Yes. Special Kitty was recalled in January 2017 for potentially low thiamine vitamin. That recall was later expanded to include more products. About a decade earlier, in 2008, we discovered at least 3 recalls that took place over concerns about potential salmonella contamination of some Special Kitty dry cat food products. Full details of all Special Kitty recalls appear below.
