Cat food recalls occur for a variety of reasons. Possible salmonella threats, listeria, or the addition of unapproved antibiotics can prompt a manufacturer to voluntarily recall a product. Prescription cat food purchased through a veterinarian has tighter guidelines and may be a viable alternative during a recall.
