Garlic back on Innova red can cat food

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Still have not heard back from naturapet re garlic back in their food. I'm just curious why its back on the label when they said they took it out. But not hearing from them makes me believe its in there. I still give my cat Innova and wellness but just want the truth on the labels.

It seems weird that it is listed there... it isn't back on their website as ingredients in the food:

If I remember correctly you said the exp. date was 6/06? Are you sure it isn't 6/05? Because I know that was the cut off date for the labels showing garlic.

I just bought a brand new case of innova red 5.5 oz dated 6/16/07 on back of can and there is garlic in the ingredients. It was off the labels for a while but its back in. Maybe some one else can contact them and find out. www.naturapet.com

Is garlic bad for cats or something???? (Personally would`nt think they`d like it anyhow...and would wonder why anyone would put it in cat food in the first place!)

I have been concerned about this, as well, and also haven't heard back from Natura regarding my inquiry.

Many people believe garlic causes anemia which can be fatal. The manufacturers say they add garlic for flavor. There was a recent thread on this. I'll see if I can find it and bump it up.

I read Wellness cans this w/e....and garlic was on it too. disappointing
The pet store owner was like "It isnt in an amount that can hurt them" so I said "WHY put a dangerous ingredient in any amt in a food?? If nothing else it will keep consumers away." She just gave me a blank look. She only carries two brands too, so I had to do some more shopping :lol

That's like saying that putting lead or arsenic in my noodle soup is OK because it's not in an amount great enough to cause any harm. Whatever. Why put it in in the first place? Sounds like she just wanted to sell the food and didn't have an answer.

Until I came here I never knew the ahrm garlic could do to cat or dog... I actually know vets that use it for appetite stimulation

I know this is an old thread, but since I'm still finding that some of the bigger cans on the shelf list garlic as an ingredient, while the smaller cans do not. I thought I'd share the email I received from someone at Innova:


Dear Jillian,
Thank you forcontacting NaturaPet Products. We have removed garlic from all our our feline formulas in 2004. You may just have an older label that was accidentally used for that productionrun. We do not have two different formulas for those two sizes of cans.

So, if you have anyfurther questions or concerns, please get back in touch.

Best regards,

I avoid feeding my cats garlic whenever possible, which is why I was upset when the label for the big Innova can said it had garlic (I had been buying the little cans, which did not list garlic). Apparently some of the big cans are still using the old labels, but Innova does not contain garlic. This makes me happy, because I can add another variety to the rotation of canned foods now.
