I've been feeding cats Fancy Feast for 20 years. During COVID, something changed in their seafood pates. My cats were refusing to eat it, or if they did eat a little they would vomit immediately. Then, my cat got violently ill. Nothing else in her environment or diet changed except that the Fancy Feast pates now had weird little white bits in it. My cat had explosive diarrhea all over the house for 6 hrs accompanied by vomit. The vet wasn't sure she'd survive. She lived. Next case of fancy feast seafood mix pates were fine. But, the next case and every case since then has those little white bits in it and cats won't eat it.

I called Fancy Feast, they refused to admit there was any formulation change or that there could possibly be anything wrong with their food since they've never had a recall. Completely unhelpful. Then, it happened again. My cat started eating the salmon pate and she became violently ill again! Same weird little white bits in the food. WILL NEVER FEED CATS FANCY FEAST AGAIN. This is too bad, because I've relied on their brand for two decades.

I have used this brand for years. I bought a bag on Sunday, by Monday night one of my two boxers was deathly ill and the other boxer would not eat the food. Thursday morning we rushed our sick boxer to the vet because he was still could not hold down water and the other boxer still refused to eat. The vet told us it had to be the food. I called Purina to report it and hopefully save someone’s pet. Purina told me that it was not uncommon for a bug to get into the bag during packaging, causing one bag to be contaminated and not an entire batch. They instructed me to throw the food away and send them my vet bills for compensation. After that their claims department calls me saying that there is nothing they can do unless I get the food (that they told me to throw away) tested and paperwork stating it was the food that got my dog sick. They have no intention of helping their customers and set them up so they don’t have to.

    I've been feeding my indoor and feral cats Purina One for years and I had zero problems. Lately though, I've noticed that my cats have been throwing up a lot more. One has developed some kind of food allergy. There's something wrong with this batch or the formula has been changed in recent years. I think this should be looked into because I'm not the only one experiencing this. I've read other reviews where pet owners who've used Purina One for many years suddenly have the same complaint as I do.

    Cat #1-3 year old female currently hospitalized for acute liver failure. Blood levels also indicate hyperthyroidism. The ONLY change to her diet and/or environment is Friskies Natural dry cat food and Friskies Farm Fresh cat food. She better survive this Purina!!! Cat #2- 2year old male began vomiting yesterday after eating Friskies Natural dry cat food. I HAVE REMOVED ALL PURINA FRISKIES FOOD FROM MY HOUSE! Not going to take ANY chances because they cannot be trusted!

    Cat #3- 2 year old female. Vomiting after EVERY single meal containing Friskies products. This has been occurring for more than 3 months. Now I know why. Friskies cat food is poison!!! Avoid this product at all cost!!! If this is all you can afford, I'm sorry. Please reconsider owning a pet.

    We have used Purina One sensitive skin and stomach cat food for about 2 years now. We have a lot of cats, some of which never interact or share litter boxes with others. Only thing they all have in common is this food. Within the last week, 11 of our cats have been having projectile vomiting and/or diarrhea after eating. Again, only thing they share in common is this food! I believe they have salmonella poisoning as another Purina brand has been recalled this year due to it.

    BUGS in the Beggin' Strips! Nasty! Gross! Unacceptable! I thought I was purchasing a quality product from a well-known company that's been around for decades! I gave a few to my dogs before I saw the BUGS. Which means I touched these pieces of crap! NEVER again!

    I've been feeding this food for years. Now, all of a sudden, my 6 cats will vomit after eating Purina One. I've had to return 2 bags to Wal-Mart now. No more. Irresponsible Purina and their incompetent factory workers are not going to kill my cats. I fed them Iams this morning with no issues and no vomiting. Thanks a lot Purina for letting us down. CLEAN UP YOUR ACT, PURINA. YOUR ENTIRE REPUTATION IS, ONCE AGAIN, AT STAKE!

    I have used Purina One cat food for years but the last bag I purchased had larvae in it. I found these things were hatching inside the bag. My cats had recently started throwing up and that's what made me examine the bag more closely.

    I have used Purina One hairball formula for years. I recently noticed sewer flies in the area so after a thorough cleaning I thought it would be a good idea to pour the food into an airtight container. As soon as I opened the bag these little black moths were flying out! I then went to the pet store to buy more food and the salesperson told me that they had many complaints about moths in Purina One. I also came here and saw other people had posted. I will never buy Purina One again, I can only imagine what their mfg plant looks like. So sad they obviously don't care.

    After purchasing (24 count) 4 pallets of Fancy feast salmon pate, my cat began to lose weight, not eat and became lethargic. I took him to our veterinarian and he had high levels of calcium. The vet asked if I have been giving him supplements and I said no. Excess vitamin D can cause high levels of calcium. I decided to take him off of the Fancy feast and would give him anything he would eat at this point - Meow mix, not the best, but he eats it up. Amazingly he is 99% better and gaining weight back. Today I take him for his follow up appt and bloodwork. If his calcium levels are normal, then Purina should take this into consideration - you may have too much vitamin D in it.
