CINCINNATI -- The Procter & Gamble Co. said Wednesday that it's recalling Iams ProActive Health canned cat and kitten food in 3-ounce and 5.5-ounce cans that expire September 2011 to June 2012.

Tests have shown the food contains insufficient levels of Vitamin B1, which is essential to feline health.

Cats that eat only this canned food are at risk of developing thiamin deficiency. Symptoms include loss of appetite, salivation, vomiting, weight loss, downward curving of the neck, wobbly gait, falling, circling and seizures. Typically, thiamin deficiency can be reversed.

For more information or a product refund, call the company toll-free at 877-340-8826.

Shares of P&G closed down 67 cents at $61.47.
