Bozita cat and dog food recalled five of its cat food products in the UK because the protein content was above advertised quantities, announced UK’s Food Standards Agency. The precautionary recall comes after an ingredient was omitted in the production process.
“Due to a deviation in our dosing system, there has been an issue of a lost raw material, bakery wheat flour, in the food which gives a slightly higher protein content than our specification,” said Kristina Hard Foster, marketing and innovation manager for Doggy AB, parent company of Bozita, in a press release. “This makes the product more difficult to digest for your cat and can lead to a disturbance in the stomach and intestinal flora.”
Doggy AB is a Swedish dog and cat food producer. Doggy owns the brands Mjau, Doggy, Bozita and Robur. Besides the UK and Sweden, the company operates in approximately 20 countries, including Germany, Russia, Poland and the Netherlands.
While cat trends continue, the pandemic has added to overall slow-growth treatment of the cat food market.
Premiumization and humanization, as well as automation, fueled continued operation growth in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.
