      Hartz announced a recall on November 2 for a specific lot of Hartz Vitamin
      Care for cats because of salmonella concerns. Here is the release from their
      website:

      The Hartz Mountain Corporation is voluntarily recalling one specific lot of
      Hartz Vitamin Care for Cats due to concerns that one or more bottles within
      the lot may have been potentially contaminated with Salmonella. Hartz is
      fully cooperating with the US Food and Drug Administration in this voluntary
      recall.

      The product involved is 3600 bottles of Hartz Vitamin Care for Cats, lot
      code SZ-16371, UPC number 32700-97701, which was manufactured by a third
      party manufacturer, UFAC (USA), Inc., in Baconton, Georgia. While normal
      testing conducted by Hartz and UFAC has not revealed the presence of
      Salmonella in any Hartz products, sampling conducted by the FDA did detect
      the presence of Salmonella. Hartz is aggressively investigating the source
      of the problem.

      Although the company has not received any reports of animals or humans
      becoming ill as a result of coming into contact with this product, Hartz is
      taking immediate steps to remove the product from all retail stores and
      distribution centers. Cat owners should check the lot code on their bottles,
      and, if the code is not visible, or if the bottle has lot code SZ-16371
      imprinted thereon, they should immediately discontinue use of the product
      and discard it in a proper manner.
      Consumers can contact
      Hartz<http://www.hartz.com/About%20Hartz/prCatVitRecall.asp>at
      1-800-275-1414 with any questions they may have and to obtain
      reimbursement for purchased product.
