The affected product was distributed nationwide in the U.S. and Canada through pet specialty stores and e-commerce.

The FDA tested the product in response to a single consumer complaint and found propylene glycol in one bag of Blue Buffalo cat treats in the impacted lot.

If your cat has consumed the recalled product and has the above symptoms, consult a veterinarian.
