Spanish petfood brand Compy has removed its products from some Mercadona supermarket shelves in Spain after complaints that the petfood is allegedly linked to kidney failure in pets, according to a report.
The petfood products are being tested by Compy's technicians to determine whether or not the petfood is connected to the kidney failure reports in dogs.
“At this stage we have only removed the product as a precaution," said Mercadona spokesman, Jorge Romero. “We have received various calls, six complaints, and it has been removed from shops in Albox, Garrucha and Mojacar. This is not all over Andalucia."
According to the manufacturer, the products in question are only wet petfood products for cats and dogs produced by Escuris, in Tetra Brick (cartons of 375ml). Compy said that a test was done in 190 out of 1365 Mercadona stores with wet food in tetra brick as a substitution for canned wet petfood. Consumers who are concerned can call a helpline, in English and Spanish, at +900500103.
